Just seeing if someone could help me with some test results I just got today.
I've been trying to tell doctors for years that I was having problems with my thyroid. But no one would listen. I moved from Washington state to Arizona and found a doctor who not only understood but was going through thyroid problems herself.
I printed out some labs from last year and brought them in and she knew instantly I had issues. So she drew blood and I just picked up the labs. I personally don't understand them exactly so maybe someone can help me out.
There is a family history of hashi's and as well I have sle,Raynaud's,and sjorgrens. Here we go:
Thyroxine (t4) 7.9 ug/dL (4.5-12.0)
T3 uptake 25% (24-39)
Free thyroxine index 2.0 (1.2-4.9)
Triiodothyronine (t3) 138 ng/dL (71-180)
TSH 1.250 uIU/mL (0.450-4.500) was 2.98 Feb 2015
Thyroid peroxidase (TPO) Ab 84 IU/mL (0-34) this was 19.3 Feb of 2015
Thyroglobulin Antibody 63.8 IU/mL (0.0-0.9)
Vitamin D level is 6.0 (30.0-100.00)
And iron bind.cap (TIBC) was 235 ug/dL (250-450)
Ultimately she started me on 25mcg of levothyroxine
Does anyone understand this at all? Any help would be appreciated. Thank you
