I received my blood results from Genova today:
Total T4 117 (58-154 nmol/L)
TSH 0.004 (0.4-4.0 mIU/L)
Free T4 16.6 (10-22 pmol/L)
Free T3 (FT3) 6.59 (2.8 - 6.5 pmol/L)
FT4:FT3 Ratio 2.5 (2.0-4.5)
Reverse T3 0.32 (0.14 -0.54) pmol/mL
Thyroglobulin (TG) 39.7 (0-40 IU/mL)
Peroxidase (TPO) 78.8 (0-35 IU/mL)
I am pleased with my T3, T4 and reverse T3 results though free T3 slightly on the high side - does this matter?
I am on Nature Throid and take three quarters of a grain a day which would suppress my TSH. Genova have said this is indicative of Graves. I am correct to think this is because I have a suppressed TSH and high antibodies. I am confused as I am of the understanding I have Hashimoto's but this is the first time I have had my TG antibodies measured. Help???
I also get palpations from time to time, particularly at night after I have taken my Nature Throid. Is this normal, last nights went on for ages and kept me awake?
