My daughter got her blood results TSH 1.5 range 0.4 -4.
No T4 or T 3 checked.
Her weight,dry skin,dry eyes,fatigue and brain fog have not improved since she had a TSH of 8.5.
At the doctors consultation she told her all of this and asked for further tests.
Doctor said the labs automatically check T4 and T3 if the TSH is not in normal range.....at 8.5 no T3 was checked.
My daughter repeated she would like them tested and thyroid antibodies.
The doctor said no,but to reassure her she would do LFTs B12 folate U&Es and ferritin levels.
Doctors feeling is there's a lag between her now been on 300 mcg of thyroxine and her symptoms.....which I may add she has had since she was in her teens and is now 33.
My daughter has always felt there is more than thyroid going on and again asked for referral .....answer see what the bloods are and check TSH again in February.
Would appreciate your input .
My daughter was a size 10 she is now a size 18 and although eats a very healthy diet and exercises at least 3 times a week,would like to do more but finds it hard due to fatigue.
