Baffled by my recent results but am due to have more bloods next wed so find out if any improvements and would like to be armed the next time I see my Gp... Would appreciate some helpful feedback x
May 2016 -
Ferritin 36 (15-300) this is the highest it's ever been!! And I will be requesting iron supplements.
TSH - 1.18 (0.30-4.40)
Free T4 - 13.6 (9.0-19.1)
Glucose 4.5 (3.0-7.7) can't anyone enlighten me on what this is for??
15th July 2016 -
TSH - 33.28 (0.3-4.40)
T4 - 8.7 (9.0-19.1)
Had a phonecall to explain 'oh your thyroid meds need to be upped, start taking 75mg (from 50mg)
Felt really ill, lethargic, tired, restless and sick, couldn't eat much at all!!
Developed a lump in my throat so went back to see GP and I said it seems like antibodies/goitre, he didn't really agree but told me to up meds to 100mg (a wk after 75mg) as I still felt terrible. I asked him to test for -antibodies, b12, folate, ferritin & vit D. He shockingly agreed
2nd august 2016
TSH- 11.61 (0.30-4.40) he was so excited for the great result in which I told him it was ridiculous and so high
Free t4 - 11.5 (9.0-19.1)
Se thyroid peroxidase ab conc - 815 u/ml ( <6.0 )
Serum folate - 24.2 (>3.0) not sure what this means, good or bad??
Ferritin - 35 (15-300)
Only picked up this print out yesterday and realised he didn't bother doing my vit d!!!
I have more bloods 31st Aug ( tsh & have asked for T3) & an appointment the following wed with him, I will ask for Vit D bloods and am desperate for my b12/iron to be raised. Always next to my b12 it reads 'deficiency unlikely unless suggestive features of neuropathy' .
I know he won't allow b12 injections as in nhs eyes I'm not deficient, any ideas how I can push for this...??
