Right, found them with Clutter's help. Trouble is, I can't remember the question! You do not have a T3 result which would tell us how well you are converting the Levo to T3, the active hormone. I guess it will be low. What are your symptoms? What is the GP doing about your abnormal results, particularly low iron? This will affect the way you convert and poor conversion will make your TSH appear low, as the pituitary senses a large amount of unconverted Levo circulating in the blood. I suggest you ask for a free T3 result and post again when you have it.



TSH is below ref range which isn't a problem unless your GP makes it one by decreasing your dose of Levothyroxine if you are still symptomatic. Your FT4 looks good but it doesn't tell us whether you are converting sufficient T3. If you are symptomatic it may be worth ordering a private FT3 test from Blue Horizon or Genova via thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testin...

B12 is low in range and most of us prefer it at the top of the range. My result was similar to yours and doubled on 1,000mcg B12 methylcobalamin sublingual lozenges. Patches and sprays are effective too.

Folate's good but ferritin is just short of optimal 70-90. Iron tablets taken for 3/4 months with 500mg-1,000mg vitamin C taken with each tablet should improve levels.

Your RBC count seems consistently high, although it is only slightly over range now. I'm not sure what it means but you may find out on Labtestsonline or Patient.co.uk

Have you copied these correctly?

serum magnesium level 14.9 mmol/L (0.7 -1.0) ino

total white cell count 7.9 10*9/L 94 -11)


Total white cell count. 7.9 10*9/L (4-11)

Serum magnesium level 0.95 mmol/L (0.7 - 1.0)


That's better :-D Both in range so I doubt there's a problem, but I'm not knowledgeable on those bloods.

Your so-called 'abnormal' cholesterol is due to you still being hypo and is absolutely nothing to worry about.
