I posted a few weeks ago after having a horrible GP appointment. I am having many of the symptoms of hypothyroidism which are really beginning to affect my life. I can't seem to get a doctor to take me seriously though and was told I was eating too much and depressed at my last appointment. A few people said to post my results on here so people could say what they thought of them. I'd really love to have anyone's input as I really don't know what I'm looking at!
Vitamin D 97.1 nmol/L
TSH 2.9 (0.27-4.2)
Ferritin 20ug/L (15-150)
Thyroid peroxidase 14iu/mL (<34.00)
Serum folate 6.3ug/L (4.60-18.70)
Vitamin B12 322 ng/L (197-771)
TSH 4.3 (0.27-4.2)
Cortisol 1613 nmol/L (171-536)
I insisted on having T4 and T3 tested as well but they haven't done it.
The GP has advised testing again in 3-6 months, I'm assuming because the TSH is not far enough above the normal range to warrant treatment. Would you guys agree with this or should I be pushing for treatment now? Can't say I'm thrilled at the thought of leaving everything to get worse.
Also I wanted some advice on the cortisol level. It's not been flagged as a problem on the results which I was confused by as it is so much higher than the normal range. I'm on the contraceptive pill, which I know can raise the level but I don't know by how much is normal. Also, I get very nervous for blood tests, is that likely to be why it is high?
Would really appreciate anyone's thoughts on these results and what I should plan to do next. I hope I one day know enough to contribute as much as you guys do!
