My latest (16 March) NHS blood test results are confusing when compared with recent, previous ones where the trend seemed to be heading in the right direction (and confirming a euthyroid indication just 2 months ago on this forum). Can anyone please explain the new results below?. Ive also shown previous ones, for reference.
TSH; 0.08 miu/L (0.3 - 5); previously 1.46, 1.15, 1.96, 0.96 (in order up to latest results)
FT4: 7.9 pmol/L (10 - 18.7); previously 10.7, 11.5, 14.4
FT3: 3.7 pmol/L (2.5- 5.5); previously 4.4 (for range 3.1-6.8, so similar)
FSH 5.6 iu/L (1.6 – 18); previously 3.7
LH 2.7 iu/L (2 – 18); previously 3.2
Prolactin 49 miu/L (45-440); previously 112
Vit D: 86 nmol/L (50 - 250); previously 18, 78
Besides clarification of the results, I would also greatly appreciate any views on:
(i) The potential that my 17-day juice fast (including raw kale which I know is a goitregen) mid-end January affected the results. Should I retest in June? I fasted to try to help my gut/candida/digestion problems which remain or have worsened.
(ii) The potential that relatively gentle exercise a few days before the test affected the results. I had previously avoided exercise as it made me feel worse and I now face having to stop again.
(iii) I am following the guidance of others who recoverered from the prescription drug-induced syndrome which initiated my symptoms and theirs. So, to try to correct my low thyroid results, I plan to use pine pollen herbs and maybe iodoral supplement i.e. 5mg iodine, uk.iherb.com/pr/optimox-cor... This seems to have worked for at least some of them but any views appreciated.
Note Ive never been diagnosed with a thyroid disorder but a prescription drug initiated my symptoms - presumably caused by adversely affecting the pituitary gland. Further details in my background on this forum.
