the thyroid is my study object for a while now and I have a result which I still can't explain and understand.
I have had a couple of blood tests in the past 7 years for the thyroid and they always were not good. Am finally getting treatment since november 2014.
In november 2013 I joined a scientific research which was done in a hospital (so no alternative testing but in a hospital lab). They tested a lot via blood and some things via urine. Via urine they tested the thyroid function (still surprises me as I thought this was not considered reliable in the regular medicine). This were my results of the 24h urine test:
T4: 1026 pmol/24u (range 1800 - 3000)
T3: 329 pmol/24u (range 800 - 1800)
Reverse T3: 30 pmol/24u (range 46 - 130)
Now here what I don't understand..The rt3 result. I only find that you need to get it tested because of when it's too high. Mine was (is?) too low, what does that mean?
I hope anybody can tell me.
