Hi, I have posted a few times as i was diagnosed hyper. I had GP blood tests done 3 weeks ago and all ranges were normal as could be but i do have Graves. I felt awful end of last week and this week, freezing cold all the time, bloated, constipated and even managing to sleep so i did a Medichecks blood test.
The results were:
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE *5.74 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 13.68 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 93.1 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00
FREE T3 3.18 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
Thyroid AntibodiesTHYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY *143.200 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES*59.79 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
VITAMIN B12 228 pmol/L 140.00 - 724.00
FOLATE (SERUM) 10.34 ug/L 3.89 - 26.80
FERRITIN 20.14 ug/L 13.00 - 150.00
Medichecks have advised me how to raise my ferratin and i currantly only take 5mg of Carbizamole daily for the last 3 weeks and they have advised me to see my GP about lowering it more but due to being Easter i cannot ask for advice and my GP has previously admitted she knows very little about the Thyroid anyway. It is the TSH that is my main concern as only 7 weeks ago i was on 0.02. I feel i have some hypo symptoms but don't really know what to do. Would it help me if i just took 5mg of Carbizamole every other day would anyone know? My antibodies have come down over the last 3 weeks so i guess reducing the dose could make them go back up again but this is all still very new to me. Thankyou!
