the following were done 6 weeks ago. and gp wanted to reduce my levo from 100 to 75 daily. I refused to reduce the dose. I dont have hyper symptoms, but have been hypo for 20 years , I have been just struggling along, not making a fuss, yearly bloods etc.
TSH LO 0.17 ( range 0.35-6.00) this was the only one done! no T4 , T3 etc!
MVC rising ? check B12 / folate/ ?/ ETOH
RBCs LO 3.92 ( range 4.10- 5.10)
MVC HI 101.00 (range 80.0 - 100.0)
serum cretinine 65 (range 50-90) normal kidney if ...
when i seen him last week he refused to do b12 etc and would only repeat TSH so the results from last week are as follows. He said the lab would not allow T4 /T3 etc and if i wanted them done i would have to go private.
TSH 0.08 (range 0.35-6.00)
T4 14 (no range given) told by receptionist gp had marked results NO ACTION.! still feel so tired, etc etc.
The more i read about the thyroid the more confused i get, if i have bloods done by blue H will this give me a ? diagnosis of what type of hypo i have?
I am also trying to wean myself off the antidepressants, as the dentist diagnosed DRY MOUTH with reduced saliva output. (cause of sore throat, sore mouth, swollen tongue, difficulty swallowing etc..) he said it was a side effect of the antidepressants.....why did i go to the dentist? because the gp never once looked in my gob!
someone wrote the fable about 2 little frogs and i feel like the one who lies down, cause i am just so fed up going round in circles like so many of you.
ps i probabley didnt write this on the correct page, but there i go.....
