Looking for advice as I'm worried my daughter is hypothyroid but Dr advised latest results are normal. As a background both my Mum and I are now on levothyroxine T4 only for hypothyroidism. I was diagnosed Graves/Hyperthyroid and treated on carbimazole then received RAI treatment and since have been on T4 only levothyroxine, albeit never ever seem to be 100% always up/down with symptoms. My daughter has all the symptoms of being hypo. Extremely fatigued, irregular periods, extremely heavy then none for months on end, multiple pains plus the mental/emotional side of being hypo, but the biggest issue being aggressive weight increase in last 18/24 months or so. This is not related to not exercising or poor diet, she’s actually eating less and less all the time! I'm getting nowhere fast and running out of options and patience. Never had adrenals/saliva checked but her latest bloods are
TSH 2.64 Ref Range being 0.4 – 4.5
FT4 12.8Ref Range being 10 - 24
FT3 2.2Ref Range being 4 – 8.3
During last test, I triple checked that it was free T4 & free T3 that was requested as comments I've read state importance of it being free.
Dr says on results that T3 was normal? Not sure if this is TT3 or FT3 now, have another appointment Friday for him to explain. If it is FT3 as I asked surely that’s a problem! I would say looking at tests results that although TSH is within spec (I feel better with really low TSH) but that both FT4 and T3 (again not sure if TT3 or FT3) is low? Looking for some advice I guess on where I go with this, do I ask for appointment at endocrinologists where I was treated at Hospital?, or possible private appointment or even another Dr, which I don’t want to do if I don’t have to?
Any help/advice much appreciated, Robert
