I had my 24 hour urine test result back from Genova diagnostics for Thyroid Hormones and iodine.
my total urine volume for 24 hrs was 1375ml
Triiodothyronine (T3) 646 - pmol/24h - normal range 592 - 1850
Thyroxinie (T4) 155 -pmol/24h - normal range 347 - 1994
T3:T4 ratio 4.2 normal range 0.50- 2.00
Iodine (urine) 71 - normal range 100 -199
So I went to my GP who was helpful but asked why did I have a private test.
I told her that I din't think the NHS went far enough with the result. so she sent me for a blood test anyway to test my TSH, Iron, Kidney and liver. (I went first thing in the morning and I had no breakfast), Not sure what they are looking for in Kidney and liver.
Any way the results came back and she phoned me with the conclusions.
my TSH was 1.56
my T4 was 11.5 ??? see urine results were 155 (what range is 11.5)
my Iron and kidney were fine but my Liver was raised. (not sure what that means) she said not to worry but will look at it again later. She is just as confused as me and will be speaking to an Endocrinologist about me today. So fingers crossed I get a clearer picture of even get to see one.I also suffer fro psoriasis and lichen sclerosis both autoimmune diseases.
I would love for someone to shed some light on why my results would differ within a short space from one test to another.
