Dr Skinner recent bloods???


Hello there, Hope everyone is feeling well today. I am a 27 year old individual who has been unwell for almost four years. I was told i was depressed / making it up / crazy and eventually given a lable of fibromyalgia and sent away with a fist full of tramadol and told to live with it. Both of my parents have thyroid disorders (Hypothyroid) but i was always told despite this and my symptoms matching my mums at her age it was not thyroid related. i got talking to a friend who had a similar story and has succesfully been treated by Dr Skinner. I arranged an appointment (Due a week on friday - the 14th) and recently also had some private bloods done as my NHS ones were always within the "normal" range. I think i know what my results suggest but im pretty new to all this so opinions of those fo you who are familiar with these things would be very welcome. MY LEVELS RANGES Total thyroxine (T4) 105nmol / L 59-154 TSH6.77 Miu / L 0.27 – 4.2 Free Thyroxine14.8 pmol / l 12 – 22 Free T34.1 pmol /L3.1 – 6.8 Thyroglobulin antibodies 188.1 IU/Ml0-115(negative) Method used for Anti –tg: Rouche Modular Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies 373.9 IU/mL0-34 Method used for Anti –tpo: Rouche Modular Thyroid Microsomal AB: (conf) Positive – Titre of 1 in 102,400 Many kind regards Kerry


I've been a patient of dr Skinner for a while now Can Shed any light on these results? Tsh - 0.01 t4-24.7 (range 9-19.1) t3- 5.56 (range 3.6-6.5) antibodies shot up from 394 to 1000

It doesn't look how id have expected it too? Im on 175 thyroxine. You guys are much cleverer than me. Also I was feeling great but I've hit a bit of a wall again the last month or so. I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia originally. Last bloods before thyroxine my tsh was 6.7 and everthing else was in range

Sorry you have had no replies, people tend to get a better response in the Questions section.....

It's possible that you may be a little over-replaced from those results, can you get in touch with Dr S...? Perhaps Levo is not suiting you for some reason?
