Hi I had a thyroid blood test done with Blue Horizon as my GP is useless! and they said everything is normal and within range. I am so disappointed though as I was hoping something would show up so that I Could show my GP and it would help me to be referred to an endocrinologist.
I have been ill for 25 years with severe PMDD and fatigue & depression and 2 year ago I was diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism and started on 25mcg of levothyroxine. Since my total hysterectomy 3 months ago I have felt worse than ever even though I have altered my dose of HRT, I asked my GP if I could raise the dose of levothyroxine to see if that would help me but she refused because my levels were normal. I have always taken my levo before any blood tests that I had done in the past as I didn't realise I shouldn't have. But I didn't with this one.
If there is anybody who could look at my results and give me any advice I would greatly appreciate it. I thought I may have trouble converting T4 to T3 but with these results I am thinking that maybe the trouble I am having is maybe more linked to my adrenals or something else?
I was advised by Blue Horizon that to check my levels of vitamins i should not have been taking supplements for a month, but I had only been off them 1 week when I had the blood test as I was anxious to get the test done.
My Blue Horizon results are shown below, should I be able to see a NHS endo with these results and the fact that I am really suffering with Depression, excessive tiredness, loss of hair etc.
