I followed the advice on here and had my blood tests early (7.30am!) after fasting.
My results are as follows:
3 months ago 1 Year ago
TSH 4.01 (range 0.27-4.2) TSH 3.17 TSH 2.81
FT4 13.3 (range 10-21) FT4 13.32 FT4 -
My only abnormal results were:
MCV 101.7 (77-98) MCV 99.9 MCV 97.7
MCH 34.8 (27.5-32.5) MCH 33.8
I have read that hypothyroidism can cause this?
Ferritin, B12 and Vitamin D had all improved with supplements and were in range (just) I am continuing to take supplements to raise these higher.
Ferritin 42.1 (41-100) was only 15.2 3 months ago
B12 582 (180-2000) was 319 3 months ago
Vitamin D 73.2 (adequate)
I also have TPOab which have increased from 204 to 329 (>100) and a family history of thyroid problems (sister and Grandma) also autoimmune illnesses. I have also had my gallbladder removed and have discovered that the slowed metabolism (hypothyroidism) also causes gallstones and problems with the gallbladder and liver.
I have many symptoms of hypothyroidism, but the GP said TSH is in range.
I haven't made an appointment since receiving these latest results and need advice.
