I've had Hypothyroid for 14 yrs - recently I paid privately to have a full check of bloods for my thyroid. The results have come back saying that my rT3 is elevated and my FT3/rT3 ratio is low - the letter goes on to say that I might not be getting sufficient free (FT3) into my cells - this is what I expected.
However, on previous visits to the doctor she has told me they will NOT give me T3.... so I really don't know what to do now.... I'm seeing her again in an hour
Any advice would be greatly received .... Vic
ps. It also says my thyroid peroxidase antibodies are elevated - anyone know what that means too?
