Ok so I posted on here with results a while ago. They were in range but my TSH was 3.17 (0.27-4.20) and T4 was 14 (12-22)
Managed to persuade the GP to prescribe Levo as my symptoms were horrendous. Family history of Thyroid problems. GP then does a U-Turn and says as my results were in range I should not be on Levo and to have a blood test for antibodies.
I came off the Levo for a week and took another Blue Horizon blood test. These are the results:
TSH 2.02 (0.27-4.20)
T4 Total L 63.7 (64.5-142.0)
Free T4 L 11.75 (12-22)
Free T3 3.93 (3.1-6.8)
Anti ThyroidPeridoxidase abs 7.4 <34
Anti Thyroglobulin abs <10 (<115)
The comments from the BH Dr are:
The free T4 level is low. In the presence of a normal thyroid stimulating hormone level (TSH), and normal free T3 level it would not surprise me to learn you are taking liothyronine (T3) instead of levothyroxine - is this the case? If you are taking a form of thyroxine medication already, you may need to adjust your dose – a discussion with your usual doctor would be sensible. If not, I also suggest you make an appointment to see your doctor – at least surveillance of thyroid function would be wise, as it would seem in this scenario that an underactive thyroid gland might be developing.
I stopped the Levo 8 days before I did the blood test.
I know I'm being a bit thick here but what do you think? I have terrible brainfog and am freezing cold again (my Levo had started to kick in and I was feeling much warmer) and am so tired.
