Just had a consultation with my GP regarding blood test results:
•23/4/13 TSH 7.7, Free T4 12.0
•16/1/14 TSH 9.2, Free T4 9.5
•10/2/14 TSH 4.1, Free T4 12
Ranges are TSH - 0.35-5.0, Free T4 - 9-24
The first two results were not reported to me, or anyone, so I was untreated.
The third result was taken after being on combined HRT for a month, and as a result of a nurse finally noticing the previous abnormal results.
I have many severe symptoms of hypothyroidism (weight gain, fatigue, depression, feel cold, high cholesterol, constipation), and also suffer from severe microvascular angina.
1. My GP said the latest results mean I do not need treatment. But I feel dreadful. Is she correct?
2. Could the combined HRT have affected the free T4 result in the latest blood test?
3. Any suggestions what I should or could do next?
Thank you in advance from this worried, confused, miserable sufferer!
