Blood results

Hi recently having been diagnosed with Thyroid problem and waiting for the biopsy results on nodule. This was initially discovered from bloods in Nov which gave a TSH 4,97 Have had the bloods redone in Jan and are now TSH 3,39 T4 12,10 Antithyroglobuline 77 Antithyrderoxydial 160 Any help with these would be appreciated. Also is it recommended to see Endocrinologist if results come back benign with regard to treatment etc.....

Many thanks

  • GW03,

    It would help members to give a more informed answer if you supplied the test ranges (numbers in brackets).

    TSH is variable and differing factors would include time that blood was drawn and whether you had just eaten.

    Many thyroid disorders produce a goitre and few are cancerous. It is good you are having it investigated. Keep us posted with your results.

    I wish you well and have deleted your other duplicated post.

  • Many thanks Flower007

    Will next time put the numbers in brackets as you suggest. New to the site so haven't really found my way around yet.

    I have actually had results which are Benign, so feeling very relieved and also very lucky!!!

    Will be seeing the GP on Wed and obviously there will be questions to ask as to how I move forward..... whether it is best to be removed, left, will it remain benign, or whether I need any medication......... also most important question is, should I see an Endocrinologist???

    Any response is much appreciated.

    Thank you.

  • GW,

    This is great news and I am very happy for you.

    I am amazed you are not under an endos care anyway. Who requested your thyroid nodule be biopsied ? Your doctor?

    Goitres, nodules and swellings are common in the onset to hypothyroidism. You will only require surgery if it is blocking your gullet or constricting your windpipe.

    Have you had thyroid antibodies TPOAb & TGAb checked?

    Your good response to going gluten free together with a goitre may indicate you have Hashimotos Autoimmune Disease.

    This is prevalent in hypothyroidism. I have it & was diagnosised with a multi nodular goitre which has since shrunk (together with my thyroid) with thyroid hormone replacement meds.

    Post any future blood test results in a new post, complete with ranges (numbers in brackets) for members to comment.

  • Once again thank you!!!

    After a blood test the GP sent me for an ultra sound scan where the nodule showed. The GP then arranged for a biopsy. Not sure about the Thyroid Antibodies will check the results again and see, if not will ask about this also on Wed. I would like to be referred to an Endo and hope that if I have to ask for this it isn't frowned upon! Will keep you posted.

  • Now investigations show the nodule isn't suspicious your doctor may not consider it necessary to refer you to an endo.

    If antibodies prove positive, TSH raises further and you become symptomatic, you should be offered thyroid hormone replacement meds.

    Post any future test results complete with ranges (numbers in brackets) in a new post for members to comment.
