Hi everyone and thank you for this great Forum where so much help is on offer. Can someone please make sense of my blood test results? I have requested the full works after reading the need for this on here and which are:
Serum Free T4 15.59 pmol/L 9.01-19.05 pmol/L - tell patient normal
TSH 0.18 mlU/L 0.35 - 4.94 mlU/L - slightly overcompensated
Anti Thyroid Peroxidase 0.5 IU/ml - tell patient normal
HbA1c levl - IFCC standardised 38 mmol/L 20.00 - 42.00 mmol/mol - tell patient normal
Plasma fasting glucose level 5.0 mmol/L 3.00 - 6.00 mmol/L - tell patient normal
HDL and Cholesterol 4.3 mmol/L
Serum Vit D 75.5 nmol/L 80.00 - 15.00 nmol/L - bit low suggest supplements
TSH (again?) 0.09 mlU/L 0.35 - 4.94 mlU/L - overcompensated
Serum Vit B12 464 pg/mL 187.00 - 883.00pg/mL
Serum Folate 11.4 ng/ml 3.10 - 20.50 ng/mL
Serum ferritin 225 ng/mL 20.00 - 204.00 ng/mL - marked !
Serum transferrin 2.85 g/L 2.00 - 3.20 g/L
Serum iron level 15.2 umol/L 4.40 - 27.90 umol/L
Transferrin saturation index 21%
Haematocrit 0.446 L/L 0.36 - 0.44L/L - marked !
Erythrocyte sediment rate 19 mm/hr 1.00 - 15.00 mm/hr - marked ! ok
I am awaiting results for ferratin, Vit D and I think Haematocrit.
I was diagnosed over 40 years ago and have been fine for all the time until I hit 50 and then they said I was over compensated and have reduced the dose and I now take 100 mcg pd. I haven't felt myself for since then and feel I am still under compensated. I am going to the GP today as I now have gallbladder symptoms and have been quite unwell over the weekend. I also keep getting fatty lumps under the skin which I am told is common. They have been scanned and confirmed as such but it worries me as I now have about 20 of them, in differing places! I might add that although I weigh more than my younger years, I would not be considered over weight.
I would appreciate it if anyone who understands these results could please offer any comments as I now realise that my knowledge is very limited and my GP is becoming less helpful. Many thanks Jane
