Hi all. I posted last week and had more blood tests done for b12, folate, thyroid antibodies. I requested T3 but can't see the results. My GP also did FBC and an ESR test. The results follow :
B12 400. (179 - 1162ng/L)
Folate. 5.2. (2.8 - 12.4ug/L)
Thyroid antibodies <1.00 (0.00 - 5.61IU/ml)
Serum Iron 16.9 (9.00 - 30.4umol/L)
Serum transferrin 2.9 (2.0 - 3.4g/L)
Transferrin sat index 22 (15 - 65%)
Serum ferritin 66 (15 - 200ug/L)
TSH 1.78 (0.30 - 5.00mu/L) This was 1.44 in January, with same ranges.
T4 11.4 (8.80 - 18.80pmol/L). This was 9.4 in January with same ranges.
ESR (test for inflammation) 21 (3.00 - 12.00mm/h)
FBC all normal except
Eosinophils count 0.4 - top of normal range (0.00 - 0.40 10*9/L)
Doctor wants repeat ESR test in 6 weeks but nothing else.
I'm Coeliac, have cysts on my left ovary and endometriosis in Fallopian tube , which I'm waiting on surgery to remove. (Keeping ovary as I'm only 45 and had my other removed with hysterectomy 6 years ago!
I have gall stones and am waiting on surgery to remove these. Not sure if surgeon will take away gall bladder or not, as yet to see consultant in June.
I have gained 3 stones in 2 years, have shortness of breath, swollen feet, foot pain, arm pain, kidney pain, constant fatigue, indigestion and abdominal pain, constipation and migraines!!
My god this sounds awful. I smile a lot too!!!
As you can imagine, the GPs must take bets not to see me! I'm trying so hard to figure out why I feel so ill all the time.
Any ideas of what I should do? I was considering requesting a trial of thyroid treatment, but I'm not sure if that would be appropriate. Or what thyroid meds to request?
