Finally managed to get a copy of the lab results which are as follows:
Serum testosterone = 13.6 nmol/L
Free T4 = 13.6 pmol/L
Free T3 = 4.3 pmol/L
TSH = 0.62 mU/L
Serum folate = 3.8 ug/L (3.1-20)
Serum ferritin = 29microg/L (15-300)
Serum vitamin B12 = 680 ng/L (130-900)
Red blood cell distribution width = 13%
Basophil count = 0.1 10*9/L (0.00 - 0.10)
Haematocrit = 0.505
Lymphocyte count = 2 10*9/L (1.0 - 4.5)
White cell count = 6.1 10*9/L (4.0 - 11.0)
Red blood count = 5.32 10*12/L (4.5 - 6.0)
Platelet count = 252 10*9/L(150 - 400)
Neutrophil count = 3.5 10*9/L (1.7 - 7.5)
Monocyte count = 0.4 10*9/L (0.2 - 0.8)
Mean cell volume = 95 fL (80.0 - 100.0)
Mean cell haemoglobin = 29.3 pg
Haemoglobin estimation = 156 g/L (130 - 180)
Eosinophil count = 0.2 10*9/L (0.0 - 0.4)
All being described as 'normal' with no need for a follow up.
However I have already determined the following based on this table that the results are not 'optimal'.
Test Lab Low Optimal Range Lab High
TSH 0.5 1.3-1.8 5.0
Free T4 0.8 1.2-1.3 1.8
Free T3 230 320-330 420
Free T3* 2.3 3.2-3.3 4.2
Thyroid Scale Overview
1. TSH is relatively low - indicative of an issue in conjunction with other symptoms
2. Free T3 is high - this would represent hyperthyroidism according to my book 'Stop The Thyroid Madness' although could indicate low cortisol with presence of hypothyroid symptoms but should also request antibody tests to rule out Hashimoto's or Graves Disease
3. Average daily temperature is low, currently ~97.4f which has however increased from ~96.8f. currently taking 2 Nutri Thyroid tablets a day. Clear indication of hypothyroidism
4. Average daily temperature not within 0.3f of each other over a 5 day period, indicative of adrenal issues
5. Vitmain B12 is not optimal. Need to increase to 800+ so will up my intake of B-Vitamins
6. Ferritin: Measures your levels of storage iron, which can be chronically low in hypothyroid patients. If your Ferritin result is less than 50, your levels are too low and can be causing problems…as well as leading you into anemia as you fall lower, which will give you symptoms similar to hypo, such as depression, achiness, fatigue. If you are in the 50's, you are scooting by. Optimally, females shoot for 70-90 at the minimum (Janie’s is 80 when her iron is good); men tend to be above 100 and optimally close to the 130's.

So therefore appear to be deficient in iron
7. Folate, lower end of scale. Again deficient from what is optimal
So it appears something is up as I've suggested all along.
Any other comments or opinions on the results?
I will be going back with my thoughts and requesting further tests and a referral, if there are no thyroid antibodies present I will request I be treated for hypothyroidism regardless. If they do not I will change doctors until I find one that will.
They are happy to dish out anti-depressants but are not looking at the real clinical presentation.
Requests for my next batch of tests so far will be:
Vitamin D test
24hr saliva test
Help appreciated as I really want to nail this this year before it drives me insane, I cannot feel like this I'm 29 not 92!
