I have hashimoto's, am on 100mcg of levothyroxine and have some recent blood test results. I have an appointment with endocrinology next week as I'm increasingly very fatigued and getting more hypothyroid symptoms and my doctor is hoping they'll give me some T3. I 'm also on HRT (transdermal patches) which I think has possibly affected the amount of T4 or something.
Anyway, results from 6th Jan:
TPO antibodies 441. 0 (<<6.0 U) This is actually a huge improvement, last year they were at 905. I attribute this to my gluten-free diet and use of selenium.
TSH 0.94 (0.35 - 5.00 U) this is up from 0.02 6 months ago
Free T4 13.0 (9.0 - 21.0 U) This is lower than the 16.0 it was 6 months ago
I managed to get a test for total T3 1.4 (0.9 - 2.5 U) I couldn't get the free T3 test though they said the endo would do that.
They tested ferritin - 80 (15 - 200 U) This has actually dropped - it was at 123 about 6 months ago.
My full blood count is low, but then again it always is.
White blood count 4.2 (4.0 - 11.0) This is actually up a wee bit fro the last time when it was off the bottom of the range.
That's mostly it - all the rest looks fine. They haven't done recent B12, folic acid. Vitamin D was tested a few months ago and was climbing to a healthy level.
I supplement with D3, K2, magnesium, selenium, vitamin C, rhodiola rosea, digestive enzymes, occasional b12 spray and occasional methyl folate.
Apart from getting them to test my free T3, has anyone any suggestions of what I can get them to test at my appointment ext week?
