Hi, I have had the following results back from a blood test done last week:
Vitamin D: 43.6 nmol/L (anything above 75 nmol/L normal)
(Vitamin D2: <6.0 nmol/L and Vitamin D3: 43.6 nmol/L)
Free T3: Not done
Free T4: 15.6 pmol/L (12-22)
TSH: 4.6 mIU/L (0.27-4.2)
(Please note I take Levothyroxine at 125mcg)
I have 2 results for Ferritin as per below:
Ferritin result 1: 21 ug/L (30-400)
Ferritin result 2: 22 u/gL (30-400)
(Please note I have taken iron supplements in the past for the low Ferritin as directed by my GP the time before, but I have since stopped the supplements since they made me feel sick) I was on Spatone sachets.
Anti-TPO Antibodies: 41 kIU/L (<34)
Folate: 4.1 ug/L (4.6-16.7)
Vitamin B12: 363 ng/L (180-900)
Plasma Viscosity: 1.64 mPa.s (1.50-1.72)
Glucose (Fluoride): 4.9 mmol/L (<10.1)
So there you have it. Also I can appreciate the practice's receptionists aren't medically trained or educated, but for me to be told by one of them I had a high plasma glucose - only for me to go through the results and find that it wasn't high at all - did put me under an excessive amount of worry.
No celiac profile and no autoimmune profile - not sure why that is even though this was arranged to be done.
So I take it I do have Hashimoto's?
I was told my antibodies were lower than before, but the test I had done at that time (January 2013) just said "thyroid antibodies 84 kIU/L" - if the TPO antibodies have lowered since then, why is that? Is it significant?
Although my usual GP has ordered these tests for some reason one of the idiot doctors I've been seeing has been getting in on the act as he ordered the TSH and FT4 to be done as well as Ferritin hence the 2 results for Ferritin. Why is he intervening as he was the one who was adamant in saying I had no autoimmune illness.
Thanks for your help
