Hello! I've just got a my test results from Genova Labs. They are not what I was hoping for, I wanted to see the thyroid antibodies high so I could diagnose Hashimotos and have an explanation for what is happening to me. Anyway here they are:
Total T4: 101.0
Free T4: 16.3
Free T3: 5.37
FT4:FT3 ratio: 3.0
Thyroglobulin: less than 20.0
Peroxidase: less than 10.0
I'm going to try the basal temperature test, but i've mostly given up on this being a thyroid issue (even though it really really feels like it). I haven't had any ultrasound on my neck, but I'm pretty sure I won't be able to get it from my doctor. Where do I go from here then? Does a trial of NDT (Thyroid-S) sound like a smart idea. Surely if it positively affects me then that will be an indication of a thyroid issue. And if there are adverse symptoms then I can just stop taking it.
I've just started a gluten + dairy free diet. Any advice/links would be much appreciated! Also I am stopping all drink/drugs, trying to shape a good sleep cycle and exercise routine (although exercise has been more difficult).
Finally, what is the consensus on adrenal fatigue and is this worth testing for?
I honestly just want to get back to normal, both physically and mentally (I'm completely fried, I've never felt more frazzled and this is not like me at all. I'm just not myself at all)
