I'm a little confused
I've been sent to see an endocrinologist who has said that my blood work doesn't warrant treatment just yet and that we have to do a period of monitoring..... but everywhere I look for information, using my last results, I'm seeing that I should be on a trial period of thyroxine to see it it helps.
I gave him a list of symptoms and family history, all women seem to have a thyroid problem in our family including my 18 year old sister who has been diagnosed underactive.
Tsh slightly elevated
Ft4 within normal range
Tpo anti bodies 962.9
Now since these bloods where taken I have been feeling much better is it possible even with antibodies for my thyroid to switch back on and produce the right levels???
The endo has requested a more indepth blood work on my thyroid function because he has said that those sets of bloods are a very limited test and wanted to look more into it before we go ahead with any course of action.... He has said my symptoms are too vague to diagnose with one set of bloods. He also said that I should of had two sets of bloods done before being referred to him. I now have to wait 6 weeks before I see him again for the results.
Now am I border line underactive or is this an autoimmune problem
