crp 22.00 <5.0

ferritin 190.5 20 -150

tsh 0.99 0.27 - 420

t4 total 49.8 64.5 -142.0

  • 'abs' means 'antibodies'. So, you've had them both tested, and they are both negative. But, that doesn't prove you don't have Hashi's because antibodies fluctuate.

    You have massive inflammation, which is why your ferritin is high.

    Why is there no FT4 tested? Total T4 tells you nothing of any use. Your FT3 is extremely low, but we can't tell how well you're converting without the FT4.

    And, despite your low FT3, your TSH is low-normal. So, either we're looking at central hypo, or a conversion problem.

  • Elvera111,

    Thyroid peroxidase and thyroglobulin antibodies are negative for autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's).

    TSH is low-normal and FT3 is low in range. Was FT4 tested?

    B12 and folate are good.

  • oops missed that one out. free t4 11.78 12 - 22, have rhumat arthritus and also had water infection prior to test. not on any meds.. central thyrodism is my incination not hashis

  • Elvera111,

    Are you taking thyroid replacement?

  • no. last endio said no need. i have app for 2nd opinion in january

  • Elvera111,

    I hope the second opinion is that you have central hypothyroidism and need Levothyroxine replacement.

  • Lab doc has reccomended lyothironine rather than levothyroxine. do you know the difference

  • Elvera111,

    Levothyroxine is T4 which converts to T3. Liothyronine is T3 so is quicker acting than Levothyroxine. If you are in the UK you are unlikely to have the option and will be prescribed Levothyroxine.

  • from newcastle. wonder why an english lab would suggest it then. blue horizon

  • Elvera111,

    It's really not up to any lab to recommend the medication required. Levothyroxine is the usual therapy for central hypothyroidism.
