My Doctor DID listen to me and gave me all I asked for + more with 22 test results - not all Thyroid related, so I'll just stick to those here unless someone asks if I have something else relevant I can add.
Thyroid Results from blood test 04/03/16. Prev result /date both on 112.5
TSH - u s 0.17 mUl/l (0.55-4.78) 0.38 15/01/16
Free T3 3.6 ngl (2.3-4.2) 2.5 14/12/15
Free T4 16.3 ngl (8.9-17.6) 8.7 14/12/15
Folate seriques 12.64ng/ml (>5.40) 23.43 14/12/15
Ferritin 110 ng/ml (10-290) 72.00 14/12/15
Vitamin B12 919 pg/ml (200-900) 772 14/12/15
For the March blood test - I also have under Blood Biochemistrŷ 'electrophoresis Proteins seriques' tests which looked at Albumine, Alpha & Beta 1&2 globulins + Gamma globulins. Albumin* and Gamma* are both above range. At back of the page there is a graph which looks like a mountain range but to be honest nothing they have written or figures they have out make any sense to me.
The whole blood test covers Thyroid, Cholesterol, Blood Disorder and Liver.
There are 10 results marked * of which..........
Thyroid has 1 only - TSH! The doctors emailed comment on whole blood test was everything was basically OK but for the Thyroid he wrote "reduce Levothyroxin to 100 from 112.5per day" !
Cholesterol has 1 - result - it's too low!
The others relate to Blood disorder or the Liver. My platelet count is rising - that I put down to taking the ArkoRoyal which contains Honey, Gingseng, Royal Jelly & Ginger.
I took it for 2 months only from mid December - mid February. I tried a different but similiar product but that was too strong. So only it took for a few days. The Arko definitely improved my mental stability. The only other prescribed med I have continued taking daily from September till now is the Levothyroxin. I don't get headaches so do not take themor antidepressant pills. My appetite is still terrible, my hair falls out a lot now, more than last year when I experimented with Levo dosages. My skin is very dry and flaky again now which it wasn't then. I think the Mold spores are definitely also affecting my whole endocrine system, especially with the neural effects - I find it very difficult to stay focused on what I'm doing, vision despite 2 successful cataract operations, and hearing have both become worse.
I have neither nor know of any UK Thyroid blood test results from May 2000 to end 2007, when simply told I was Hypothyroid. So I presume antibodies were never tested for either.
I moved here Jan 2008. Between 3/Sep 08 after returning from UK with a UTI, when TSH 3rd generation, was 22.33,in October 08 it was 1.08 (0.47-4.64) also Oct Free T4 1.22 ng/100ml (0.71-1.85). it was always TSH and Free T4 only tested. T4 always in range - no T3 testing.
I also had frequent Cholesterol testing where results showed nothing alarming, but a lab warning to look for signs of Type 2 Diabetes when or if Total went up or down but stayed in range. Yes I was overweight and tubby - not metabolising my Thyroxine properly? 09/10 may be when I was put on Metformin and that definitely had an effect on me, taken with Levo. Muscle and strength loss, more fatigue, vision, hearing deteriorating much more quickly than over previous years. Even rapid moods swings and became aggressive. My spleen eventually became swollen, the start of my Blood disorder as not producing enough white blood cells and eventually my red cells also compromised. A lot to take in and consider but I do think there is a correlation between Thyroiditis and Type 2 diabetes medications - where one type destroys effects of the other and leads to more immune conditions. Bearing in mind I'd started life with a gland removal!
