Hi, I'm hoping that someone can help me make sense of the results I have received today. I went to Doctor with symptoms of underactive Thyroid and I have been diagnosed with that and I am on 200mcg of thyroxene per day to treat that. I also have Type 1 Diabetes, Coeliac and Endometriosis. Doctor said she would do a full blood count, check your B12 and cortisol level and all your thyroid tests. Sounded good. She also said that even if results were ok she would refer me to an Endo who treats the patient and symptoms not just blood test results.
Free T4 (lab range 9 - 21) result 21 pmol/L
TSH (lab range 0.2 - 4.5) result 0.09 L
Free T3 (lab range 2.6 - 6.2) result 2.7 pmol/L
Sodium (lab range 135 - 145) result 135 mmol/L
Cortisol (no lab range given) result 306 - comment at bottom says 'Cortisol New adult cortisol cutoff for 30min SST: >430
Doctor said all results normal except Cortisol which is a bit low and she wanted to do a SST to check for Addsions which she said is very rare.
I convinced her to refer me to Endo as my T4 at top of range and T3 at bottom of range and obviously my Adrenals could be affected by my T3 and I believe that the T4 is not being converted due to my gut problems(coeliac)
I missed the fact that there was no B12 result in the printout while in her office so don't know if it was tested
Was I wrong to ask for Endo referral, what do you think? I would really appreciate any assistance
