Hi all you lovely helpful people,
I'd be really grateful for some help interpreting my husband's test results.
TSH 1.66 mIU/L (0.27 - 4.20)
Free Thyroxine 19.64 pmol/L (12.00 22.00)
Total Thyroxine (T4) 87.6 (59.00 - 154.00)
Free T3 4.24 (3.10 - 6.80)
Thyroglobulin Antibody 10.150 IU/mL (0.00 - 115)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody 15.84 IU/mL (0.00 - 34.00)
A bit of background: reason for testing: I read a paper recently (flagged up on this forum - my thanks to the poster) which said that people with long-term chronic pain can be poor converters and thus have low T3. Hubby has suffered chronic pain from osteoarthritis for 30+ yrs and is constantly sleepy and fatigued, so I suggested getting tested to see if low T3 could be a cause. He is very nearly 80 and on several medications including Tramadol, Flecainide (a Beta blocker, Mebeverine (anti-spasmodic) and Warfarin.
Any insights gratefully received - thanks.
