Hi everyone. Not posted before so hope it’s ok to ask. I really want to feel better & hope someone can look at my thyroid results and advise.
TSH is <0.05 mIU/L. Range 0.4-5.0 Flag A
Free T4 is 20 pmol/L. Range 9-19 Flag R
Free T3 is 3.4 pmol/L. Range 2.6-5.7
Nutritionist told me that free T3 is in range but said it’s the ratio between them that’s important? And T4/T3 ratio is too high at 5.88. Can anyone help me understand what this implies and what I can do about it.
I’ve been hypothyroid since thyroidectomy 40 years ago. I also have other conditions that are unstable, including Addison’s disease and ulcerative colitis and others. I don’t absorb meds well due to the gut disease. I’m just so completely exhausted all the time and have low bp and heart rate. I think that the Addison’s is also causing some of this as I have trouble getting enough meds on board for that. But I just never feel well these days.
Despite so many of my other blood tests and this being flagged up as abnormal, contact patient or further tests required, I am being told they are all ok. Even my Vitamin D which came back at 35nmol was ‘normal’. Nutritionist suggested a supplement and it has risen to 103.
I hope you guys can help me understand if there is something I can do to improve things.
Thanks so much.
