So when I was diagnosed back in Nov I knew nothing about any of this - then I found this forum and did some research, so feel a little wiser now, always learning!! Frustratingly I did ask the nurse when I had my bloods done last week what they tested for and she said everything, so I said including T3? And she said yes. But sure enough, they've sent me my results (upon my asking) and they've only included T4 and TSH So it probably says nothing... but I thought I would post it anyway in case they're any use at all!!
I was put on 50mcg of Levo and when I got the results back today I was simply told they were normal and to keep going with the same dosage and they'll test me again in a year. No asking how I was on the medication etc.... not that I was surprised given the majority of people's experiences here, but it's clear it's all about the numbers not the symptoms.
Anyway, here we are! Any thoughts appreciated
25/1 - Thyroid Function Test (IDG848) - normal
Serum Free T4 Level - 15 pmol/L (9 - 22.70)
Serum TSH Level - 3.09 mu/L (0.35 - 5.5)
On 23rd November when I first had them done it just says
Se thyroid peroxidase Ab conc - (IDG848) - in keeping with autoimmune thyroid disease - 213 iu/mL (0.00 - 60.00)
