Since the age of 16 I've had hypothyroid symptoms but it wasn't until I was 41 that my thyroid function was tested. The results were borderline and as such dismissed as having no impact on my health, which was very poor to say the least. In the last four years it has deteriorated to such an extent that some days I can barely get out of bed. It truly is a miserable existence, both for myself and my family. I've seen five different GPs, two endocrinologists, gastroenterologist, had numerous abdominal scans and more blood tests than I can remember. In these there were some consistencies, most notably anemia, low levels of vitamin D, B12, folate, high cholesterol but low triglycerides and lymphocytes. A few weeks ago I collapsed in the morning and had yet another blood test. I wonder if any of you could shed some light on them as my endocrinologist and my GP think they are quite normal. Am I barking up the wrong tree in thinking that perhaps I suffer from hypothyroidism?
Vitamin D (25-hydroxy) 77 (51-163) Up from 33 after several injections and daily doses of 4000 IU
Vitamin B2 501 (197-771) Up from 143 after supplements
Ferritin 272 (13-150) Far too high, previously 6.0
Folate 3.3 (3.9-20)
Lymphocytes 1.3 (1.5-4.0)
TSH 1.01 (0.27-4.20) 2.6 in Oct
T4 12.84 (12.0-22.0) 9.0 in Oct
T3 tested only in Oct: 4.1
Thyroid peroxidase abs 12.27 (0-34)
Any comments would be hugely appreciated as I'm at my wits' end and cannot face being advised to start taking anti-depressant for the sixth time by my GP. I do not suffer from depression but I do get low when feeling particularly unwell.
