It's just so depressing to not get the results that will make a gp wake up and do something for you.
Just collected my latest blood results and I'm ashamed to say that I am gutted because they are in range and they look better than 3 months ago. I don't feel better though. I had an appointment with the gp in 10 days time but I have cancelled it because I just don't think there is any point in going just to be smirked at. I really can't take another pointless appointment. He had told me he would test IF for PA but hasn't.
I had tests at 7.30 am, didn't fast. Don't have a diagnosis yet but I suspect possible Hashi.
Folate has improved...from 3.83 in January to 20.72 but I have been on 5mg of folic acid for a month.
B12 gone from 488(211-911)in January to 410 which I know he will say is fine because he thinks his levels of 90 are fine!
Ferritin has gone from 7.8(10-291) in January to 9.6 which is a slight improvement. Have been on 3 doses of Floradix x day for 2 months then stopped for the tests. Planning on restarting it now. I know it takes a long time to improve ferratin so glad to see it has at least gone up this time instead of going down like it had previously.
FBC looks very similar to 3 months ago and nothing out of the ordinary there
Had ESR tested and I am bang in the middle of the range 6 (3-9) so that looks ok
Calcium levels also look ok.
TSH has gone like this:
Aug 13 1.4 (0.35-5.5)
Jan 14 3.4
March 14 2.4
So it's gone down.
FT4 has gone like this:
Aug 13 16.4(10-19.8)
Jan 14 13.3
March 14 14.7
Still waiting for Vitamin D which was low in the summer so have been on 5000 x day. Also waiting for TPO results. As TPO had been climbing (92 in Sept and 247 in January with range of 0-100) I know that Hashi is a possibility and I keep telling myself that tsh isn't a perfect test and that if I do have Hashi tsh swings all over the place. It's just really hard to stay positive. Perhaps I have reached that point where private is all that is left to do but even that doesn't sound like it's always the answer.
I'm having a crappy day and I'll get over it...just needed to vent and whine for a few minutes to people that understand how disheartening it is to get good results when you still feel absolutely rubbish.Great big fat bummerrrrrr
