I have posted on here several times and just wanted to share my recent Blue Horizon results. Very briefly, I have Hashimotos with very elevated antibodies (TPO and TgAb). Have a large benign nodule (irregular edges) and smaller nodules and two episodes of thyroiditis 20 years ago after my daughter was born (hyperactive symptoms confirmed by blood test results). I have never taken any thyroid medication. Results from yesterday are:-
TSH 1.69 (0.27 - 4.20)
FT4 14.79 (12 - 22)
FT3 4.10 (3.1 - 6.8)
I did the test because I have had the following symptoms:-
Puffy, swelling in face and hands
Very weak, painful muscles
Exceptionally dry skin on face and hands (peeling)
Can't lose weight despite healthy eating
Exceptionally dry eyes (optician confirmed last week I am at serious risk of eye damage)
Daily and frequent palpitations
Exhaustion and falling asleep every evening on the sofa
Pressure and strangulation feelings in throat
Swelling in thyroid gland (noticeable)
Poor memory and brain fog
Raynauds's syndrome (long standing)
My ferritin has risen from 7 to 14 (range 11 to 300)
B12 is ok at 385
Vit D was 78 last year so I think that's ok and endo said it was fine.
The only supplements I take are Spatone iron water (I cannot tolerate iron supplements) and Boost B12 spray from Holland & Barrett.
I didn't know whether to be relieved when I saw these results or in disbelief that they appear to be so 'normal'. Maybe I have a problem with my thyroid receptors!!
If anyone can comment on why I might still be feeling awful despite these results I would be very grateful. Thank you so much in advance!
