THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 8.73 IU/mL 0.000 -34.000
I didn't get the reverse T3 done this time but I think my other results are showing a definite movement towards hypothyroidism. However I had a blood test done at GP on 20/04/2017 which, I found out when I picked up the results, also included TSH and FT4. The TSH was 2.96 (0.27-4.20) and the FT4 was 12.9 (12.00-22.00). Both were fasting tests, MediChecks @ 7am and GP @ 9am so not sure if this could account for the difference.
I've been having b12 injections, have persuaded GP to make them every 8 weeks due to neurological symptoms but when I had the latest one, about 2 weeks ago, I didn't feel any benefit at all so am wondering if most or all of my symptoms are now due to the thyroid rather than a need for b12...
I don't think the GP will take any notice of the private blood test, especially as everything is still 'in range' I just feel like I've been hit by a bus everyday.
do any of you wonderful people think I'm likely to get even a trial of levo if I take the results in to the GP, even assuming I can get to see one - they insist on a telephone consultation before they decide if you need to be seen.
I think I've probably rambled enough now, could go on for ages but I'd end up repeating stuff and missing other things out.
btw my vit D is now 120 (20-120) having supplemented, ferritin has always been well up in range but not tested for a few months
please let me know if you need any more information, I'll try to provide all I can, but am currently at a loss as to what to do, I'm thinking of trying to source some levo myself if the GP won't play nicely but am worried about how to work out the right dose etc
