I went to see the doc a couple of weeks ago about a strange sweet taste in my mouth she tested my urine then and there and took a blood test, both for diabetes. Problem is she took my TFTs at the same time. reason? the sweet taste may be to do with my thyroid(?!) anyway the results came through and Im seeing the other doc tomorrow (thankfully).
Problem is my bloods were taken at 3ish in the afternoon and by this point i had taken my armour dose for the day at 12.30 (morning dose 07.30 and then before lunch 12.30) my results were:
TSH- <0.05 (0.15-3.2)
FT4- 21 (9.9-20.1) The first time ever that my T4 has been at the higher end!
FT3- 9.8 (2.7-70)
I have managed to tell my doc that the TSH doesnt count when taking armour and that FT3 is important. But now she's gonna think im hyper and i'm not (no dramatic weight loss, no shakiness, no anxiety so on)
I think its timing of the blood test as my last result on half a grain less in november was 6.1 (FT3) (done fasting in morning)
Ive read in STTM that T3 peaks 2 hours after taking it and think its that. what do i say to doc?
