A few weeks ago I posted about experiencing lots of hypothyroid symptoms which have been worsening over the last 12 months, mainly hair loss, tiredness, lack of energy, low libido, depression, always too hot or cold, dry skin, heart palpitations, ect. (I'm a 20 year old male)
I went to the doctors about it and had TSH and FT4 tested. These came back as:
TSH - 6.97 (0.3 - 4.8)
FT4 - 13.6 (8.4 - 19.1)
The doctor wasn't interested in these results and wrote 'Doubtful Significance - Repeat in 6 months' This is when I posted on here and people said go back and ask for more tests and that TSH is high.
I have since been back and seen my doctor and spoke about it, he is still reluctant to do anything about it.
I asked to have a look at 2 previous blood tests from 2012 when I was tested due to excessive sweating and the TSH was 6.3 then a couple months after that 6.5 - Doesn't this show it isn't an anomaly and could be getting worse.
I asked for more tests and got these results back:
Peroxidase Antibody - 1 (0 - 8)
Free T3 - 5.2 (2.4 - 4.8)
I also had testosterone tested and got these results: (The ones that look low/high to me)
Follicle stimulating hormone - 2.5 (1.3 - 19.3)
Prolactin level - 385 (56 - 278) - This seems very high for a man.
Testosterone Level - 11.5 (6 - 27.1)
I read about Prolactin levels online and high results can can low sex drive and ED and is often caused by hypothyroidism as it is controlled by the pituitary gland.
Can anyone help in interpreting these results as I really do want to work out why I'm feeling like this.
