Lindybarr,

Thyroid antibodies are negative for autoimmune thyroid disease (Hashimoto's). Your thyroid levels are currently euthyroid (normal) because they are all within range but TSH >2.0 indicates your thyroid gland is beginning to struggle. NHS won't usually diagnose hypothyroidism and prescribe Levothyroxine until TSH is over range or FT4 below range.

Vitamin D is insufficient. VitD is optimal around 100nmol/L. I would supplement 5,000iu D3 daily for 3 months and then reduce to 5,000iu alternate days and retest in May.

CRP, ferritin and B12 are fine. Folate is low in range so you could supplement a B Complex vitamin to raise it.

Hi, I can't see much wrong with your results. Your Free T4 and Free T3 are toward's the lower end of the range.

Why do you think it's your thyroid that's the problem?

Hi Simon,only because i have so many of the symptons on the thyroid uk tick list,also its been over a year with not much help from the doctor,only tested for the tsh level which is over 2,most people on here say it should be under 1,thats why i had private blood tests,but its difficult for me to understand what they mean,it seems my vitamin d is insufficient,i will take results to doctor but i know its pointless really
