Im hoping somebody can shed some light on these figures for me.
I always think I know what is right and what is wrong when you take T3 only ie take no notice if the TSH is extremely low because it doesnt matter.
However, Ive got my results and Im totally confused and Id like some advice to take to the doctors with me.
These are the figures Ive been sent:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE *8.98 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE *5.5 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3 4.0 pmol/L 3.1 - 6.8
You will see that my TSH is actually quite high (is that weird in the circumstances?) and my T4 is very low (totallyt out of range) but that the T3 figure is in the middle somewhere at 4 (range of 3.1 to 6.8).
Can anyone give me a clue please. Is this indicating anything I should be aware of?
