As recommended I went back to my GP for a TSH T3 and T4 blood test. I had one done in 2012. I was told at that time I was in range so just carried on with tiredness, weight gain. Well you will all know the rest.
The GP I saw today had arrange a TSH in July. Again at the time she told me I was in range, and suggested a group therapy session to talk through my anxieties !!!!!
Since then I found your site, and equipped with new found understanding went back to see her. She sat there tight lipped and said the lab would not do T3 and T4 because I am in range.
I got a print out from the 2012 test as well as the resent ones, and here are the results. Anyone's help in understanding them would be most welcome.
Serum TSH level (XaELV) = 2.7 mu/L [0.4-5.5]
Serum free T4 level (XaERr) = 14.2 pmol/L [11.5-22.7]
Serum free triiodothyronine level (XaERq) = 4.8 pmol/L
Serum TSH level (XaELV) = 2.1mu/L [0.4-5.5]
Serum ferritin level (XE24r) = 42 ug/L [10.0-291.0]
Serum TSH level (XaELV) = 1.9 mu/L [0.4-5.5]
Serum vitamin D level (XE2e7) = 45.0 nmol/L
