Can anyone help me with some advice on this. I posted last week but I think it got pushed down the list and missed.
Good morning everyone,
I have received my results back from genova and understand what they are saying but I suppose wondering if my GP will use them.
I have been hypo for 19 years and on levothyroxine 175mgs. I told my gp in February that I thought I had a conversion from T4 to T3 problem. She dismissed this straight away even though my T3 has never been tested, and she stated never would be as labs don't test it.
I did the private tests I suppose just to prove to myself that I was right..
The results are as follows:-
T3 219 Range 592-1850
T4 994 Range 347-1994
T4 Ration 0.2 Range 0.50 - 2.00
Adrenal Stress Profile
DHEA Mean 0.85 Range 0.40-1.47
DHEA Cortisol Ration 1.13 Range 2.0-6.0
I am wondering if my results are skewed as I take 10mg of amitiriptiline at night for IC and also Beconase nasal spray for Hayfever.
In a nutshell. Im not converting. What should I do about it. My nutritionist said we could try supplementing. This could be quite expensive and Im not sure I could afford this in the long run.
Advice and guidance needed please.
