I think I may have a thyroid problem.
I have had the standard NHS blood checks ie TSH and T4.
I have a reading of around 3 for TSH which is quite high (range 0.27 - 4.2) and a reading of around 14 for T4 which is quite low(12-22)
Doctors I have consulted have consistently told me that as I am within each of the ranges, there is no problem.
However I read on the web that these ranges are often not accurate and that I should request 4 additional thyroid tests viz Free T3, Reverse T3, Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies and Thyroglobulin Antibodies
Have others been diagnosed with a thyroid problem when they have returned 'normal' readings for TSH and/or T4 ?
are the other 4 tests available on the National Health Service?
