Hi everyone, thought I could get any input in my husband's recent visit to the endo last week.
He is 72, not been diagnosed officially with anything, although he had positive antibdodies when tested last year. His current results are tsh 0.01(0.3-5.0)
As he hasn't a clue about any of this( neither did I until I joined here) I wrote down some questions to ask. Didn't get very far, as he said t3 result not important, it's the ft4 that he goes by( here we go again!!) he has never been on any medication for thyroid problems, and this was only found as a result of GOP doing tests for something else.
However, he has just had a glucose tolerance test which shows he is pre-diabetic, so no more sweeties or cakes etc. For him.
Can anyone think of a reason why he would be over range on his t3 when his ft4 is barely mid range?
Our gp asked how he had got on with hid endo appt., and I think she was rather surprised that he had just said to come back in four months! Obviously, with their training, They do tend to get a bit twitchy if ft3 is over and tosh suppressed.
Look forward to hearing your comments.
