In a letter from my endo this morning (the copy sent to my GP, not to me) I have received some numbers...that's the only descriptor.
No reference ranges or even units. Needless to say, I've contacted the endo's secretary and asked for reference ranges and Free T4 and Free T3.
Given that I'm hypopituitary, I'd say that my pituitary is working like the clappers sending TSH, but the ratio of "bald" T4 to T3 is not right. The endo suggests upping my levo to 125mcg. These results were pre-going back to T3. I've been on the T3 a week and feel so much better. I remain to be convinced (until the Free results come back) that I need more levo, so intend to just swan along with what I'm taking (100 levo, 20 lio)
When I was a kid (many many moons ago) I'd have been slaughtered if I'd given in graph results without units, or a map without a scale and north pointer. The numbers might as well be tiles on the roof. So there - I'm feeling a bit stroppy!
Any feedback on the silly numbers would be welcome.
