Friend collapsed and thyroid tested late morning. Lab results TSH 7.9 (0.3 - 4.5); T4 14.6 (11 - 22).
Repeat bloods done early morning 2 weeks later - TSH 2.68 (0.34 - 5.6); and T4 11.4 (8 - 18); TPO 0.6 (0 - 9 ).
Symptoms: Dry skin, loss of body hair, sleeping 11 hours a night; recently nodding off in afternoon; and slow, irregular heart rate of 59 bpm.
GP says it's not a thyroid problem, but has agreed to repeat bloods in 3 months time. However, has referred to heart team.
I wondered what the wise ones on this forum would say?
