Hi everyone. I had my first endo visit today, I have low TSH, borderline high T4 and high T3, I don't know the exact figures. The doctor started by asking if I had any symptoms so I reeled them off, he then said "we don't go by the symptoms, we go by the blood results", he also said I couldn't be hyper because my T4 was normal. But if my T3's high then doesn't that make me hyper as that's the active form? He then said it could be my medication (atenolol and ramipril) that's affecting conversion. He said I could level out or go either hypo or hyper and he was just going to monitor me. He then sent me for blood tests and gave me a script for carbimazole but told me not to take it unless his secretary tells me to when I ring for the blood results. Has anyone else had a similar experience because I'm totally confused now? He also told me in no uncertain terms that my depression bore no relation to any thyroid problems!
