Hello - Second post, so please bear with me.
Suffered with depression and anxiety for many years, prescribed antidepressants to little effect. Also have weight gain, and zero energy...
Last 12 months problems have got worse, eventually diagnosed with low Testosterone levels, and treated with Testogel by an endocrinoligist but with no effect on the symptoms.
Started suspecting thyroid issues.
Parents both had thyroid issues, father treated despite no symptoms, mother eventuall treated despite similar symtoms to me and a normal TSH!
So decided to have the full Blue Horizons thyroid tests, results below.
The Blue Horizons doc added this comment - bear in mind I'm NOT on any meds apart from vitamin D (800u/day):
"The free T4 level is low. In the presence of a normal thyroid stimulating hormone level (TSH), and normal free T3 level it would not surprise me to learn you are taking liothyronine (T3) instead of levothyroxine - is this the case? If you are taking a form of thyroxine medication already, you may need to adjust your dose – a discussion with your usual doctor would be sensible. If not, I also suggest you make an appointment to see your doctor – at least surveillance of thyroid function would be wise, as it would seem in this scenario that an underactive thyroid gland might be developing."
Now booked to see an endo in London next weekend.
Any comments welcome!
