Been to doctor this morning to discuss bloods taken on Tuesday. Was hoping for an increase in Thyroxine as on 50mg of Levo at present but now need another blood test to test Lipids, GT, CRP before any increase and doctor asked me if there were any tests I would like done and I said T3 please after handing over a copy of Deiodinases nahypothyroidism.org/deiodi... which I had highlighted the Iron deficiency and Inflammation associated with common conditions parts that feel apply to me.
Doctor agreed to test for T3 if they will do it but said I probably have Fibromyalgia and have I heard of that and told her I had and I said I had read that it is linked with thyroid problems. Doctor went on to say there is no proper treatment for Fibromyalgia. Told her my palpatations were coming back and worse before and during my period. She took my pluse and said I was tachycardic.
Blood results 12/11/2013
TSH - 1.75 mu/L (0.40-4.00)
Free T4 - 16.7 pmol/L (12-22)
ESR - 26 mm (4.00-12.00)
CRP - 12.0 mg/L (<5.00)
Gamma GT - 132 iu/L (<40)
Alkaline phosphatase - 121 iu/L (35.00-105.00)
ALT - 96 iu/L (<33.00)
My last liver function tests back in August had come right down but they are now back up to where they were before I started taking levothyroxine.
Hopefully the doctor will read the printout I gave her and understand more about how thyroid disorders affects your whole body. Just hoping that the T3 blood test will be done by the lab and be interesting what the results will be.
