I have a friend who has Hashimotos and on T4. I am trying to help her out. She is loosing hair really really bad and has so little hair left. GP won't do any other test than TSH and T4 and keeps telling her there are no other thyroid medication other than levothyroxine! She has done a total thyroid test privately. Results are below. Please comment.
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4): 103 nmol/L ref range - 59 - 154
TSH: 1.60 mIU/L ref reange - 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE: 15.8 pmol/l ref range - 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3: 4.1 pmol/L ref range - 3.1 - 6.8
Thyroglobulin Antibody *463.9 IU/mL ref range - 0-115(Negative)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies*>600.0 IU/mL ref range - 0 - 34
P.S. she takes her T4 around 8 in the morning, blod was drawn at 9:30 and she didn't take the dose in the morning on the day.
