I have had brain fog and tiredness and return of dry skin and feeling the cold (have many more layers than other members of my family) for a while so got my bloods done. Despite asking for 'the 5' they were not all done and was then told I was lucky they did B12 and Folate the lab shouldn't have. For the first time in 4 years T3 was done.
Serum vit B12 272ng/L (197-866)
Serum Ferritin 52 ug/L no range given
Serum folate 13.3ng.mL (3.1-20.5)
TSH 0.08 mu/L (0.27-4.2)
fT4 21.9 pmol/L (11-22)
fT3 5.1 pmol/L (3.9-6.8)
Glucose 3.9 mmol/L (3.5-11)
My T4 when done (lab doesn't do it if TSH is in normal range) has always been between 20.7 and 22.9 irrespective of my TSH (apart from when I was pregnant so obviously a different situation). For example it was 20.7 when my TSH was 6.21, but it was also 20.7 when my TSH was 0.9.
When I phoned for results I was told to stay on same does levo (125 micrograms) and recheck in 1 year (I did not have a copy of the values then - I have to fight hard to get them despite it being my right) I then saw GP (not my own due to major mess up at my surgery) to discuss another problem and was told to drop my dose by 25 micorgrams every other day. It was agreed that I could stay on this dose (which I have been on for a year) and reck in 6 weeks.
I also felt the glucose was quite low considering I had had a decent breakfast just over 1 hour before the blood test - which was a 9.30am. I take levo at night and had taken it the night before my blood test which is what I normally do.
I don't have much faith in my surgery - I had to provide a whole load of evidence (thanks to this site) to get dose increased when I was pregnant - they were going to do first check at 12 weeks, and I only got diagnosed in the first place due to hearing a radio program saying if you have a family history of autoimmune problems (I have that on both sides) and are trying to get pregnant in Europe they automatically check. TSH was 78! - I had given up going to GP's and being told tiredness etc was because I had 2 young children! Good job I take responsibility for my own health!
