So had private BT done with Medichecks on December 21st,it showed
Reverse T3 *27 (10.000-24.000)
FT3 4.58 ( 3.100-6.800)
Reverse T3 Ratio *11.04 (15.010- 75.000)
Total thyroxine 126.8 ( 59.000-154.000)
Comments made ,reverse T3 elevated and FT3/rT3 ratio low ,which could suggest that you are not getting sufficient free Triiodothyronine into your cells . Great im thinking i have some back up to get second opinion .
So back to Gp on 10th Jan, asking for second opinion ,Im thinking to myself at least i have something in black and white now to help maybe get a trial of T3 from Endo, SILLY ME!!! DIDNT EVEN GET AN APPOINTMENT !! .today i find out its the same Endo i saw previous back in September ( id already told GP i wanted to see someone different ) , He declined to see me ,stating this lady was reviewed in September and discharged back to your care (GP) ,
She has since had her T3 and Reverse T3 ratio done privately and is marginally !!! out of normal range ,however this is something we do not have any experience with ,nor do we check it on our thyroid patients ,more over there is no scientific evidence supporting its use , i suggest you reassure her that her thyroid function is optimised and unlikely to be the cause of her symptoms and would not benefit from being seen in the endocrine clinic again !! to say i feel let down again is an understatement ,
Sorry for the ramble but just had to let off steam , trying not to get stressed about it as i know it will just make it worse , so basicly just spent 150 pounds for nothing!!!!
Hope all you lovely people are ok,
best wishes SUNNY ,although not feeling very Sunny at the moment more like STORMY !!:((((
