Hi everyone please could anyone help here i am again with many ongoing horrible symptoms of hypothyroidsm after having a baby and feel shocking and ill! has anybody got some good advice for me I went last week after speaking to you all back to my lady gp armed with recent blood tests thyroid uk guidlines symptoms was very calm she was very nice and says it looks very much like underactive thyroid this time but i was within range and she would consider a trial of thyroxine but would not want to send me hyper and would not give me any trearment? so refered me to specialst ! only problem soonest appointments is 6 weeks away and i struggle to get through the day never mind 6 week and going private is 5 weeks at moment as dr on holidays typical. here are my recent blood tests just for a idea with ranges i decided to have a blue horizon private test done sat to so have included those but t the ranges are diffrent to gp ones
20/07/13 tsh 9.77 mU/L (0.02-6.00) free t4 9.0pmol/L range(8.0-18.0)
24/07/13 tsh 5.56mu/l (0.02-6.00) free t4 8.5pmol/l range 8.0-18.0
antibodies 0.6u/ml re f0. 0-.9.0
6/08/13 tsh 9.55miu/l range 0.27-4.2 free t4 9.6 pmol range 12.0- 22.00
(dr comments: " if Your not already taking thyroxine this almost certainly represents s new diagnosis of under active thyroi dgland as antibody test is postive autoimmune thyroid disease is likley to be the cause)please discuss with your doctor .
where can i go from here? i thought i had a strong case and even stronger now with my new blood results and the comments iv not taken these results to dr yet please can anybody advise can i demand treatment on these facts
thanks so much for your time
