I have just received these results (below) back from Blue Horizon. The reason for the private test was that I still suffer from excessive tiredness even though I take 75 mg of Levothroxine daily. As you can see my TSH is raised and my T3 is low. I am going to make an appointment to see my doc on Monday, although I am a little concerned that he may not take these results seriously! I have read on this site that a lot of GPs are not happy with us obtaining our own results! I am also concerned that my GP may not prescribe additional T3 alone as this doesn't appear to be standard practice for GPs. In addition I have low levels of Vitamin D which my GP informed me recently that I am borderline so therefore no medication was required! What I am also shocked at it the low ferritin levels which I have never been made aware of by my GP. Also the extremely high levels of the Anti-Thyoidperoxidase and Anti-Thyroglobulin bothers me.
Any pointers or assistance in this matter would be greatly appreciated before my doctors appointment.
