First off, this is my first post though I have been reading the forum for a while now and am very grateful for all the time taken to help answer people's questions. Now I have one of my own.
I have been suffering all manner of symptoms that may well be related to the thyroid. I saw an endo in Zurich a few weeks ago - I should point out here that I live in CH.
My results are as follows:
Testosterone0.3 - 3.4 nmol/l 1.9
TSH 0.10 - 4.00 mU/l 1.48
T4 10.0 - 28.0 pmol/l11.3
DHEA 0.8 - 11.7 µmol/l 9.5
T3 3.0 - 9.5 pmol/l 4.2
aK g TPO < 34 U/ml * 165
Ferritin 10 - 220 µg/l33.0
I have included the testosterone and DHEA in case they are relevant. My progesterone-oestrogen ratio is ludicrously low at 3.3:1. An ultrasound was performed and I was told she could see evidence of Hashimotos.
However, she also found elevated liver enzymes and seems intent on pursuing this and ignoring everything else. ( I have cut out all alcohol and all but 1 cup coffee and have started with milk thistle. I am btw starting 100% gluten free after being 80% free for much of the last decade. )
In her words '' everything is fine; all is normal''. The Hashimotos? '' it is insignificant''
Are my results fine? Is the Hashimotos insignificant? Any advice very gratefully received. I feel somewhat bemused by it all, not least the bills that amount to more than 1000 CHF.
