Could anyone help me understand my results please.
I have posted my results here before. ..
in September blood tests showed TSH 6.08 (0.34 - 5.60), T4 9.3 (7.9 - 20.0), T3 5.4 (3.8 -6.0).
I have had a lot of hypo symptoms for years, although bloods were borderline.
My ferritin is low - 9 and I have been taking iron supplements for 2 weeks now.
endocrinologist wanted to start me on 50 mg of Levo, but I managed to get a private prescription for half a grain of NDT - and have been taking that for a week.
Prior to starting NDT I was unwell with sore throat and severe depression and was signed off by GP for 2 weeks. During my appointment I asked for blood test to check for Vit B and other minerals - which came back as normal. I didn't realise GP asked for thyroid check as well.
As results came normal GP asked me not to start thyroxine, but I already started on it and not sure what to do. The blood test was done a day before I took my first NDT.
I can not understand the reason for results to become normal. Could it be down to taking iron?
Should I keep taking NDT and get blood test in 6 weeks?
