I posted my blood results back in November I was really struggling my GP thought I was fine ... I really wasn't brain fog and fatigue were awful.
Ended up seeing a private dr who from my symptoms thought might not be thyroid at all but something different. I've got the results (posted below) and am seeing him in a few weeks:
TPO = 61 IU/ml 0-150 range
TSH = 1.8 0.5-3.0 range
Free T3 = 2.7 2.5-6.5 range
Free T4 = 1.4 0.7-2.5 range
SHBG = 28 15-120 range
DHEAS = 167 40-290 range
Testosterone = 37 20-130 range
Progesterone = 2.3 3.3-22.5 range
Estradiol = 52 43-180 range
Ratio Pg/E2 = 44 100-500 optimal range
Cortisol x4 times day tested X1 reading came back low evening at 0.5 0.6-1.9 range all other cortisol tests came within their time ranges
AM = 6.9 3.7-9.5 range
Noon = 2.1 1.2-3.0 range
Evening = 0.5 0.6-1.9 range
Bedtime = 0.4 0.4-1.0 range
Highlighted areas in lab report are the low evening cortisol; Estradol not being well balanced with progesterone; Progesterone low; Testosterone low normal; SHBG low normal; TPO low so hashimotos unlikely.
My symptom fit with low T and due to TPO and what private dr said I'm thinking hypothyroid could have been caused by whiplash injury/reduced neck circulation from the injury.
SHBG results concern me a star blood sugar stabilisation has always been difficult for me so I'm linking the low T and insulin resistance.
After these tests he started me on some supplements and I do feel better than I did but not finished yet.
Does anyone have any clue about what these results could mean? I'm struggling to process but appreciate having a read before my appt.
Apologies for the long post.
