Hi I recently posted about the best time to have bloods taken and followed the advice given i.e early morning before food.
I have got a copy of my results but it looks as though everything is well within the normal range so I am now despairing as I feel awful. I am constantly cold, basal temp ranging from 35.0- 35.9 I have been taking it daily for the last 4 weeks.
Average daily temperatures just below or around 36.
Skin as dry as sandpaper, hair brittle and very dry ( hairdresser commented on it when I had it cut a couple of weeks back).
Scalloped tongue, extreme tiredness, brain fog, I could go on.
I should add that I have a strong family history of under active thyroid problems on both maternal and paternal (mother + two of her sisters, fathers side three sisters).
I am 54 and have gone through the menopause.
My cholesterol has been steadily rising , although not measured on this occasion.
Bloods as follows:
serum TSH 2.04mU/L (0.30-5.0)
serum fT4 16.6pmol/L(11.0-23.0)
serum vit B12 534 ng/L (172-1162)
serum folate 7.1 ug/L (4.6- 18.7)
I was supposed to have ferritin levels measured bit D checked and the thyroid antibodies checked in addition but they appear not to have been done, they were on the blood form, I will have to call in to the surgery tomorrow to find out if they forgot to give me that sheet.
I have another appointment with my GP next week, I am not sure how that will go as he was sure that I was exhibiting all the signs of a thyroid condition when I originally saw him a few weeks back.
I am hoping that someone might be able to shed some light on why I feel so rotten.
I have other blood results but all appear about mid range.
