I posted on this forum a few days ago, about my chronic depression and tiredness, my suspicion of hypothyroidism, and my doctor's unwillingness to test my fT3 despite my TSH being above optimal and fT4 being at the low end of 'normal'. I paid Blue Horizons for further tests, and these are what I got (the TSH and fT4 agree with the NHS results):
CRP: 0.60 (<3.0 mg/L)
Ferritin: 56.0 (30 - 400 ug/L)
Free T4: 12.94 (12 - 22 pmol/L)
Free T3: 3.76 (3.1 - 6.8 pmol/L)
TSH: 2.69 (0.27 - 4.20 IU/L)
T4 Total: 80.0 (64.5 - 142.0 nmol/L)
Anti-Thyroidperoxidase abs: 7.4 (<34 kIU/L)
Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs: 17.8 (<115 kU/L)
Vitamin B12: 261 (Deficient <140 pmol/L; Insufficient 140 - 250; Consider reducing dose >725)
Serum Folate: 23.98 (10.4 - 42.4 nmol/L)
So I am at the low end of the range for fT3 as well, as I imagined I would be. But I don't know how to interpret B12, Ferritin and Folate, and I don't know what CRP is.
GIven my chronic depression and the fact that TSH, fT4 and fT3 are way off optimal, does anybody out there think a doctor (in Brighton?) will take my results seriously and consider thyroid medicine?
