In a big panic, as suddenly having some very unpleasant symptoms, and afraid I might be going hyper again, I got a test done with Blue Horizon. I need to explain that I WAS in a panic, as I'm not even sure I opted for the right test! (From past experience, ladies on the BH phoneline aren't able to advise). So, in hopes that someone might please be able to help me make sense of what's going on, here are the results I have (BH do say you can request additional tests from the same sample within 7 days):
TSH 2.34 (range 0.27-4.2)
Free Thyroxine 13.0 (range 12.0-22.0)
Free T3 4.6 (range 3.1-6.8)
The one thing I understand from this is that the TSH is higher than I've seen it for years (1.07 last Aug, and hadn't registered at all for years before that). Something must be wrong, as I feel awful. This has come on fairly suddenly after being stable on 150mg of PTU, but have just been through extremely stressful episode with elderly mum being poorly (I'm carer), work not being very understanding.
I also got a Ferritin test out of curiousity as although my iron always comes up normal, Ferritin has always been low in the past (GP says this is fine if iron OK); also a separate Vit D test (awaiting result), as incidental testing last year showed this to have virtually bottomed out - again, no explanation.
Ferritin 27 (range 13-150, ideally >27)
Very, very grateful for any help interpreting this.
