Sorry to re post this but I didn't get much of a response last week and I'm speaking to my gp again this week so need to understand this better to fight my case for treatment. Any advice appreciated. Thank you.
Ok so I had a BH test 7 weeks ago which showed my tsh was 6.54 and ft4 was 14.8. Others were all normal too. My gp acknowledged them and agreed I was subclinical as the bh gp also suggested.
Here are my results from today 7 weeks since the last test. My tsh has increased by 1 in only 7 weeks. My folate raised I'm not concerned about as stupidly realised I've been taking an overdose of it by mistake lol I take a multi vitamin with it in and it sin my liquid iron, how stupid of me. I will be stopping one of these from now on.
Ferritin has raised from 31. B12 is about the same.
Now I'm concerned. Why is my tsh raising so fast and my t4 which I'd have expected to have dropped is now rising? My gp said last time my gp at 14 was good and proved my body was producing thyroxine so he did want to trial me on it just yet. Now my t4 has raised to 15.8 I stand no chance do I.
The Blue Horizon gp has basically copied and pasted the exact same comment as last time. Saying repeat in 3 months, if this is your first elevated tsh repeat in 3 months or sooner if symptomatic.
That's it. No mention of what else can raise a tsh level. Can anyone shed some light? Is there any other condition that could be causing my high tsh?
Hypothyroidism is in my mum's side. My mum has it.
