My Doc did a whole screed of Blood Tests, and now I've read a bit more about Hypothyroidism, some more of the blood test results are starting to jump out at me and demand my attention. Any help is much appreciated, and thanks in advance!
Free T4 12.6 pmol/L Range 9.0 - 24
TSH 2.15 mU/L Range 0.3 - 6.0
Free T3 4.1 pmol/L Range 3.5 - 6.6 and some more ...
I'd read to ask for additional blood tests to be done? One was:
ESR which was actually marked "HIGH" 44 mm/hour Range: 1.0 - 15 May I ask someone to explain that to me? It isn't marked 'no further action' but I've had no contact from my Doc.
Another blood test was CRP. Am I right that this means C-Reactive Protein? If so ~
CRP (High) 44 mg/L Range 2.0 - 10
Isn't marked 'no further action' but I've had no contact from my Doc.
Another marked high (not sure of the relevance)
Triglyceride (High) 2.58 mmol/L Range 0.84 - 1.94
The test for Lyme Serology was Negative, but with the nore: "No detectable antibodies ... Serology may take 3 to 8 weeks to become positive. Please send a second sample ... if clinically indicated. File note? No action required. I live my life surrounded by sheep on every boundary and had 3 cats at the time the test was taken! The Doc and I know how difficult it is to get a positive on Lyme but is taking "no action" when for more accurate results can take 3 - 8 WEEKS.
I'm going to ask her for another test. That's not good enough, is it?
Please help, I'm feeling really 'down'.
