I have had hypo symptoms for years, requested 3 blood tests over the last approx 7 years but was told that I was borderline and therefore treatment was not required. I ordered myself a comprehensive private blood test and these are the results:
TSH - 6.9 (Range 0.27-4.20)
Free Thyroxine - 10.26 (Range 12.00-22.00)
T4 - 64.8 (Range 59.00-154.00)
Free T3 - 4.34 (Range 3.10-6.80)
Thyroglobulin Antibody - 437.900 (Range 0.00-115.00)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies - 442.3 (Range 0.00-34.00)
Vitamin B12 - 88 (Range 140.00-724.00)
Folate (Serum) - 3.3 (Range 3.89-26.80)
CRP - 0.4 (Range 0.00-5.00)
Ferritin - 60.67 (Range 13.00-150.00)
My doctor put me on 25mg of Thyroxine and referred me to an Endocronologist but my appointment isn't until May. He didn't offer me much other information. Can anyone interpret these results? My symptoms include tiredness and lethargy, coldness, brain fog and difficulty concentrating as well as general social withdrawal. I should also add that I am vegetarian, and have been for 16 years.
Any advice, suggestions or just shared experiences appreciated. Thank you very much in advance.
