NHS thyroid blood test inconclusive

Hi,

I hope you are able to help me out as my NHS thyroid blood test came back as inconclusive and it needs to be repeated, my question is what does that mean? I changed a few months ago from Levothyroxine 150mcg to Dr. Lowe's Thyro-Gold 300mg. I have to say I feel so much better now for example I am not tired all the time, my eyebrows grew back, I can talk quicker and my memory improved as well. I haven't told my GP because she won't listen when I am complaining as my blood results with Levothyroxine are 'just' fine.

Thanks

  • I have no idea what that means! Inconclusive for what? What was she testing for? Did you not ask for a copy of the results? It's your legal right to have a copy, under the 1998 Data Protection Act.

    If I were you, I'd go back and get my results for as far back as possible. You need to know exactly what was tested and what the results were. A doctors idea of 'just fine' might not be yours, because she doesn't have to live with them! But you can't argue with her if you don't know what the results were.

    You might have to pay a small charge for them, depending on how far you go back. :)

  • Thank you Greygoose, I will go back and try to do my best to get the test results from the receptionist and report back.

  • If the receptionist gets shirty, just tell her she's breaking the law. :)

  • Were you taking Thyro Gold alone when you had your blood tests? or are you adding it to levothyroxine?

    Do you have a print-out of your blood test with the ranges, if so post them please.

  • Thank you so much for the reply everyone. I only took Thyro Gold when I had my blood test so I will go back to the GP to get a print out and a new form for the blood test

  • I asked the receptionist and she said that my TSH is <0.01 (0.35-5.00) and T4 is: <13 (9-19) Does this look like I am now hyper on Thyro Gold?

    Thanks
