Hi everyone, I have just got my results back from Blue Horizons for my Thyroid +10 finger prick test, I only sent it to them yesterday, so the turnaround was very impressive!
I am a little disappointed with the results as they seem to show that my levels are all normal, they are as follows -
Free T4 - 16.29 pmol/l Norm: 12-22
Free T3 - 4.83 pmol/l Norm: 3.1-6.8
TSH - 2.26 IU/l Norm: 0.27-4.20
T4 Total - 110.9 nmol/l Norm: 64.5 - 142.0
Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs - 13.1 kIU/l Norm: <34
Anti-Thyroglobulin abs - 15.3 kU/l Norm: <115
CRP - 0.50 mg/l Norm: <3.0
Ferritin - 105.9 ug/l Norm: 30-400
Vitamin B12: 329 pmol/l Norm: 142-725
Serum Folate: 37.25 nmol/l Norm: 10.4-42.4
Could anyone offer any advice on my levels?
If I do not have hypothyroidism, then I don't know else could be causing my low body temperature which averages 35.8c (can be as low as 34c when I first wake,) my low heart rate which averages 58bpm when I wake and then goes to approx 62bpm during the day.
I have a lot of fatigue no matter how long I sleep and my worst symptom is that when I eat during the day, I get very bad brain fog and fatigue, that almost feels like depression - I can't think straight and my head feels very heavy and clogged up which can start 10 mins after eating and go on for several hours. I have monitiored my blood glucose levels and have ruled out diabetes.
I seem to have quite a bit better at night and can tolerate food more easily without feeling fatigued.
High carb foods are definitely the worst, but I can even just eat some blackberries and suffer brain fog/fatigue.
Does anyone else suffer serious fatigue when they eat?
Thank you in advance for your comments.
Many Thanks, Adam
