I am fairly new to the testing mystery for Hypothyroidism, but have been living with symptoms for several years.
Recently these have gotten worse along with the usual dry hair skin and nails, weight gain and aching joints I have now developed poor concentration, co-ordination problems, excessive weight gain, UTI's, swelling in my arms and feet, thinning hair and bloating......the list goes on.
Given that I exercise everyday which includes min 3 times a week resistance training and have an healthy diet the Dr agreed to do full blood counts.
My results were:-
TSH - 1.5 (0.3-5.5)
F T4 -9.8 (10-19.8)
Not sure what Serum Free T level is for but that was 4.6 (3.5-6.7)
Although I am pleased he agreed to the full tests second time around I can't help thinking that if we had done this two years ago when I pointed out some minor issues I could have saved myself some unnecessary symptoms.
Can anyone please help explain the results in layman terms and help me understand why the Dr advises there is nothing wrong????
