Just came home from the doctor again. They want to take some more blood tests. TSH and free T4, I asked about B12 and Vit D and Ferritin so they taking those too.
My last result was
FSH 4.26 (0.35-5.50)
Ft3 3.8 (3.5-6.5)
Ft4 11.7 (10-19.8)
I have lots of symptoms muscle weakness, tiredness, irregular periods etc.
My first TSH test was 5.6 last month so that has decreased. What do you think? The doc just say that it's normal but I don't feel well.
Does anybody know if the period affect the TSH level? When TSH was 5.6 I was between ovulation and period and the lower one was taken on the 2nd day of my period.
Also, what time of day is best to test? Morning or evening (I can go as late as 8pm)?
Fasting or no fasting? I read somewhere that fasting decreases TSH- is this true?
I would really appreciate any advice. How do I get them to give me medication?
