Hi, my mum (72) has had increasing hypothyroid symptoms over the last 20 years. In that time she has only seen one endocrinologist who determined her over medicated on TSH results only so she has struggled to get thyroxine. She is currently on 125g although her GP wants to reduce it. She's just found another doctor willing to do all the tests however despite asking the lab only did the following:-
Vit D63nmol/lrange 50-150
Vit B12419ng/lrange 180-914
ferratin135 ug/lrange 20-275
Cortisol (done at 1pm) 356nmol/lrange 101-536
FT423.4 range 9-20
TSH0.01mu/l range 0.35-5
She is seeing a new endo this Monday, any advice on further tests she should ask for? Any help would be much appreciated.
As an aside I had a TT last Dec due to a substernal MNG and my sister had a HT last Nov due to a abnormal FNA of her MNG so thyroid problems seem to run in the family.
