Thyroid (T3 & T4)

Thyroid (T3 & T4)

Hi all,

I was hoping someone could maybe help me understand just what may be occurring.

Apparently I've been borderline for years, however, I didn't have any blood tests for around 3 years and now I've been sent to an endocrinologist. Apparently I have a goitre & the results from the blood test are in the picture.

Sorry for the long post and thanks in advance 😊

Welcome to our forum and am sorry the doctor didn't put the results with the ranges. We always need numbers. Your doctor is right to send you to an Endocrinologist to examine your thyroid gland. Your post isn't long :)

A member who has had a goitre will respond with advice.

Always get a print-out of resuts for your own records and make sure ranges are also quoted as well as the results.

When you get blood tests for your thyroid gland it should be the earliest possible and fasting (you can drink water) and if on thyroid hormones allow a 24 hour gap between the last dose and the test and take afterwards.

I think you need your antibodies tested.

Gemma2907,

Suppressed TSH with high FT4 and high FT3 means you are hyperthyroid. I'm surprised your endocrinologist hasn't commenced Carbimazole (anti-thyroid drug) to reduce your FT4 and FT3.
