I am hoping someone can enlighten me, as I have no idea what these test results indicate.
At last, I am being listened to, and treated with respect by a new (to me), healthcare team.
I had one consultation (London hospital), regarding sjogrens syndrome. During consultation, I expressed my view that I believe thyroid is causing many symptoms. (Diagnosed hypothyroidism 27 yrs ago, managed well on meds, until just over 2yrs ago). I asked if it would be possible to have antibodies for thyroid blood test. Consultant kindly agreed, and I am waiting for the results.
Meanwhile, I attended another appointment he arranged (also London), for an ultrasound of the neck.
Sononographer immediately told me that I haven't got a thyroid, that it has shrivvelled up. She also said there was no evidence of any significant damage to salivary glands, from Sjogrens.
Today, I got GP blood test result (i requested test after having levothyroxine increased 9 weeks ago:
Serum free t4 level 19.5 pmo1/L (9.0 - 26.0)
Serum tsh level 0.04 mu/L (0.27 - 4.20)
I am hopeful that someone here can advise me about the above results as I do not see the consultant (London), until August now.
I believe my thyroid blood results are ok as I have been learning a lot on HU?
I have never been seen by an endocrinologist (despite requesting my GP to refer when I became very unwell just over 2 years ago), GP refused to refer.
Thank you to everyone, for sharing and caring.
