I have finally just got my Dr to refer me to an endrocologist after trying for 5 years. I have had weight gain, brittle nails, cold sweats, nausea, adrenalin surges, enlarged tongue, extreme fatigue, and waves of depression on and off lasting from weeks to months at a time. The symptoms are always worse in the winter months. I have no control over the symptoms they just start. I am new to this site and wondered if any of you were/are worse in the winter months? Also what tests are the endrocologist likely to do? Many thanks.
Hi all following on from above I had private testing done last year and my results were as follows;
TSH 0.52mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2 (low)
T4 96nmo1/L 59 - 154
Free thyroxine 13.8pmo1/1 12.0 - 22.0 (low)
Free T3 3.8 pmo1/L 3.1 - 6.8 (low)
thyroglobulin antibody 13.5IU/mL.
Thyroid peroxidase antibodies 5.0 IU/mL 0-34
The result letter said I should b treated with having 3 low levels? Can anyone with good understanding of the results tell me what they think? Thanks
