First post so here goes. So.... I haven't been feeling right for a very long time. (I had graves years ago 30 or so and was warned that my thyroid might go the other way in later life) here I am at 49 and thought I would get them checked privately via medichecks as they were recommended via thyroid uk.
Here are my results.
TSH - 2.41
Free thyroxine - 18.4
T4 - 108
Free T3 - 4.3
Reverse T3 - 26 ** out of range 10 - 24
Reverse T3 ratio 10.7 ** out of range 15.01 - 75
Thyroglobulin antibodies 576.7 ** out of range 0-115
Peroxidase antibodies - 130.5 ** out of range 0-34
Went to see my GP who wanted me to have their blood tests. And yes they are "normal" with no further action needed.
I am confused and worried. Both my mum and aunt have thyroid problems (my mum had a list of autoimmune problems and I don't want to end up the same way - diagnosed with type 1 diabetes age 59 then coeliac disease then a sjogrens then cancer -you can guess the rest)
Am I ok or a hypochondriac! I feel the doctor thinks I am making it all up.
Any advice would be so helpful. Thankyou for reading
