Help with results please

Hi all.

Popped over from the Lupus UK site. Having investigations for suspected Lupus/MCTD/Vasculitis - not all three might I add! The rheumatologist put these on his letter to my GP. Other tests are in the pipeline and I have yet to be given a definite diagnosis. That said, I was also wondering if it is possible to have a thyroid problem along with any of the above? Goodness knows, I don't wish to add to my never ending list of symptoms but, whatever I do have, appears to share some similarities with thyroid disease.

I recently had some bloods taken for thyroid and it noted: 'Satisfactory' and usually, if nothing untoward then 'Normal' is posted above the results. Strangely enough, during my constant visits back and forth for numerous 'imagined' symptoms I have had the words 'borderline' mentioned before regarding my thyroid test results - with no sign of concern for awful symptoms. They have all been attributed to 'my age' or 'depression and anxiety' - I see from reading through many previous posts that it seems that's how most GP's operate with regards to thyroid problems?

I will post my results below:

test resultSerum TSH level;Serum free triiodothyronine level;Serum free T4 level Report, Satisfactory, No Further Action (Patient Informed)

Coded entrySerum TSH level 0.78 miu/L [0.35 - 4.7]

Coded entrySerum free T4 level 10 pmol/L [7.8 - 21]

Test resultSerum ferritin level;Serum folate level;Serum vitamin B12 level Report, Normal, No Further ActionSerum ferritin level;Serum folate level;Serum vitamin B12 level Report, Normal, No Further Action

Coded entrySerum folate level 4.7 ng/ml [4.5 - 45.3]

Many thanks for taking the time to read through.

Any comments truly appreciated.

B12 and folate are too low. Go over the pernicious anaemia society on health unlocked for advice stating your health issues.

Your thyroid results are euthyroid e.g. normal thyroid function.
