The endocrinologist has just called with, quote, 'positive news' about my test results - they are all 'normal', as follows:
TSH 3.14 (0.35 - 6)
FT4 14.2 (9 - 26)
Vit D 51 (50 - 150-something or even more - he spoke so fast I didn't catch what he said. If this is the value in the summer, heaven knows what it is in the winter - may explain the awful hip aches I would wake up to every morning)
I've also had the FT3 result from Biolab:
3.14 (2.63 - 5.70)
Other results from August 2013:
B12 878 (191 - 663)
Folate 5.6 (4.6 - 18.7)
Ferritin 90 (15 - 350)
Currently awaiting the short synacthen test (apparently there is a worldwide shortage at the moment).
I've never been diagnosed (on account of the 'normal' test results), but have many hypo symptoms, the worst being weight gain, inability to lose weight, low body temperature and feeling the cold (e.g. while watching the 2014 men's final at Wimbledon I was wearing a long-sleeved top, fleece, long trousers, wool socks, wool slippers and had a thick pure wool jacket draped across my body - and my feet and hands were *still* cold. The thermometer in the room was registering 21 C / 70 F !!).
I have a history of ME, though over the past seven years I haven't had anything like the fatigue I used to get, so can function fairly well on a daily basis.
I would appreciate it if I could have some help wth interpreting these results and especially advice about the low Vit D and the best course of action - should I go to my GP for further advice, for instance?
