I have picked up my blood results and whilst my GP is on holiday I hoped someone would comment on them before I see him again. Forewarned is forearmed!
Amongst other things, my GP wrote "patient on both T3 & T4 so please check T3 levels".
The lab wrote back "On T3 & T4 but TSH feedback relevant as when just on T4. Therefore T3 NOT analysed". ............
My bloods were testing for liver function, bone profile, urea & electrolytes, full blood count, plus
free T4 [20.6 pmo/L Range 11.00-23.00 ]
TSH [0.05 mu/L Range 0.35-5.50 ]
Vit B12 [679 ng/L Range 190.00-900 ]
Folate [12.2 ug/L Range 2.00-19.00 ]
I've asked reception if another GP can reorder the T3 in absence of my own Dr, in readiness for my next appt with him, but would appreciate any comments on the above figures as I guess I'm likely to be told "you're fine ......."
If it would help, I can post the liver etc test results but didn't want to overload the post. In particular my red blood cell count was 4.32 this time, and 4.19 in Sept [ 4.20-5.40 ]
and the packed cell volume was 38.2 this time and 36.5 in Sept [37.00-47.00] so low this time and below range last time.
Any comments appreciated.
