hi there all , as briefly as I can , after many trials and tribulations with the full support of our g.p. [ in many ways ] we have controlled my lady's hyper & then hypo problem - together with other associated problems within 2ish yrs , and for the past year with regular 6-8 week full blood tests and meds adjusted on the results -- she has been on 5mg carb ,vitd3 7 folate for about 4 mths -- and this has been superb for her [ other meds & higher doses have been gradually reduced without any health problems ] . she had a full blood taken on weds last week , as we have an endo apt tomorrow [ tues ] -- and we allways go to the endo with a full set of results taken within the previous week so a correct profile is there .
the help/advice I am after is this ....... for the past year her results have been roughly tsh just below range ---- ser.free t3 higher end of range -- but not over -- ser.free t4 higher end of range -- but not over ....... ferretin / folate / vit d3 === within controllable ranges ........ but the latest results were serum free t3 17 [ 3.55 -5.44 ]......serum t4 42.1 [10.0 - 19.8 ] ..... she has recently had a problem for about 3-4 days with back & side pain which resolved itself in some way , could this be a cause ? I have some idea of how to approach the endo 2 morrow , but any helpful advice would be welcome ..... I will obviously post after the appt with an update ...... sorry for the long post ,but I look forward to any help you can give us .......alan
