For the first time I had my antibodies checked to see if the problem is my pituitary and here are the results:
In theory I have both Hashimoto's and Graves!!!??? Is that possible? My GP says there's nothing she can do about my treatment (currently 100mg of thyroxine).
Anyway, here are the results of the only test I've had for anti-bodies:
7 Apr 2016
Anti-TPO Antibodies: 784 U/ml (0.00 - 150.00U/ml)
Anti-Thyroglobulin Abs.: 2346 U/ml (0.00 - 150.00U/ml)
Serum TSH level: 1.85 MlU/L (0.27 - 4.20mlU/L)
GP says she can't get me a T3 test! Although at the hospital I got one where blood tests are sent to. It's all madness! She says that as only 4% of the NHS budget is spent on GP service is the reason why.
She wont deal with my TSH levels because "they're within range", claiming that upping my dose, currently 100mg or adding T3 might damage my heart further, which is news to me.
Furthermore she said that until the NHS alters the 'within range' figures for TSH, there's nothing she can do.
So I'm buggered, there's nothing I can do short of going private, which I ain't gonna do!
