First of all, I would like to thank this site, the administrators and the members with who without I would have been left to the behest of ignorant Doctors. Thank you all for your help, advice and support XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXx
I am still up in the air!! Not because I CLEARLY have thyroid disease, but because it has been recognised and is being treated - and wait for it - with NDT!!!!!!!!!
I went to see this wonderful man in Winchester who listened to me, looked at my clinical symptoms (and blood tests) and quickly came to the conclusion that I had an underactive thyroid and offered me Erfa. He also said that he thought my adrenal function was in a poor way and is treating that as well He has my full 1000% recommendation!!
I showed him the blood test that I posted recently, and together with that, my basal temperatures for nearly a month, which were low, and his clinical appraisal of recent trauma. He either wants to see me again in 6 weeks or a phone call or a Skype call to discuss the situation.
It cost £138 for his consultation, and around £50 for the medication - which included the Erfa, homeopathic remedies and Nutri Adrenal and Nutri Adrenomax. He also wants me to do a Genova Adrenal stress profile which was £75. A follow up consultation will be £68. Money well spent Ladies and Gentlemen.
Then, when we got home, the Blue Horizon test that I did last week, you may remember which I took at 5am. to catch the natural circadian rhythm, came through. A BIG difference in the TSH - At 4.30 in the pm it was 3.14 range 0.34 - 5.60 at 5am it was 5.7 in a range of 0.27 - 4.2 - BINGO!! And they also give you a short report which said that the TSH was elevated!!
In the afternoon the T3 was 4.6 in a range of 3.80 - 6.00 - at 5am it was 4. 6 in a range of 3.1 - 6.8 (not a big difference)
In the afternoon the T4 it was 10.0 in a range of 7.9 - 20.0 - at 5am it was 102 in a range of 59 -154 9 (not sure about that?)
The free thyroxine which wasn't tested before was 13.9 in a range of 12.0 - 22.0 -(can someone tell me what this means??) and the thyroglobulin antibody was 18.8 on a scale of 0-115 (negative) also what does this mean?
It was well worth the visit and the blood test, and for the first time in a while I feel I've actually got somewhere! If you want my wonderful man's details please PM me and I will pass it on gladly!!
Huge Love to All
