Hello Blade

I am not the most experienced on this site and I am sure someone else will be along soon. However, do you have a copy of your blood results so that you can post them here, it will help everyone to comment. A lot of doctors just test TSH, but if you are lucky they will do T4 and if you are very lucky T3. Sometimes if your TSH is way out of range the lab will do T4 and possibly T3. If you could post your results that would be helpful.


Hi Jade

I agree with Jan - post your results, get the actual figures and ranges then post them as a new question...

Blog posts are sometimes missed, and I'm sure you'll get more help if you ask as a question.

Best wishes Liza
