Hi there, I just got my lab tests back from Blue Horison and wondered if anyone can help?
I'm already on 125mg !evothyroxine and didn't take them or any supplements for 24 hours before the test.
The doctors comments were as follows 'The ferritin level is high. In addition to excess iron supplementation, raised serum ferritin can be a sign of inflammation or infection, though in your case the normal level of CRP would suggest that the latter possibility is unlikely.
The thyroid function is currently normal. The total thyroxine level is low but is of unlikely significance as the FT4 is within normal range - and this is the more accurate representation of the level of thyroxine in the blood. The positive thyroid antibody result, however, increases the possibility of your having autoimmune thyroid disease, such as Hashimoto's thyroiditis or Grave's disease.
Unusual results as follows,
Ferritin High- 163.2 ( normal 20-150 ug/L)
T4 Total Low - 62 ( normal 64.5-142nmol/L)
Anti Thyroidperoxidase abs High - 274.5 ( normal < 34)
Anti Thyroglobulin Abs High 404.5 ( normal <115)
Just wondering where to go with this information...
Many thanks, any advise appreciated
