This is my first time posting. I've had an underactive thyroid for about 10 years now (can't remember precisely when I was diagnosed as the GP swept it under the carpet as something that was easily dealt with. Ho hum). I take 100 mcg levothyroxine daily. My dose was increased from 75mcg just over a year ago.
Last week I had some blood tests taken and I'd be grateful for your help in interpreting these. The GP feels all is normal but I don't feel normal. He is however referring me to a rheumatologist as he recognises that I'm not making up the worse than normal fatigue that I'm experiencing. Of course it may take some time for this to happen.
TSH- 2.15 mIU/L (0.4 - 5.5)
Free T4 - 20.1 pmol/L (10.3 -24.5)
B12 - 500ng/L (197-771)
Vitamin D - 72.4 nmol/L (50-120)
Iron - 32.6 umol (5.8 - 34.5)
Ferritin - 162.3 ug/L (13.0 - 150.0)
In April of this year I started suffering with tinnitus which I now understand can be thyroid related. I had a CT scan that showed there was no middle ear reason for this.
Thank you very much for your help
