For those of you who are new to a hyperthyroid diagnosis of Graves disease, I want to give you all some hope. Here are my latest thyroid test results which are all normal and have been for almost 9 years now.
Range for Normal
TSH 0.87 (0.35 TO 4.94)
FT3 3.8 (2.6 TO 5.7)
FT4 13 (9 – 19)
Alkaline phosphatase 63 (40 – 150)
ALT 11 (7 to 40)
They are all in the normal range while I am on a very low dose of Methimazole and supplements. Thank God I found the research on carnitines & other supplements & thyroid. I have kept my lab tests within the normal range since 2009 (almost 9 years now). It does require good follow up and lab tests and adjustments occasionally in drug or supplement dose but I feel normal and I am glad I chose this method of treatment. It also helps that I have a wonderful doc. It wasn't always that way but we learned from each other and I feel we have a good doctor-patient partnership now. I see him twice a year now unless I run into difficulties, in which case I can call for a sooner appointment.
