I had a private BT done at the same day and the same location were my doctors test request was done. ...... TWO different results for the lot!!!!
private :TSH= 0.05 (0.40-4.00) Ft3= 5.9 (2.8-6.8) FT4 = 6 (10-20)
GPs : TSH= 0.01 FT3= 4.6 FT4= 9.6
He ordered THS,T3,T4 and written as test result, was: FT3,FT4 why is that? Printing mistake?
And because he ordered T3 and T4, I have ordered private FT3 and FT4 he said there is no noticeable difference in the ft or t tests, that is why he ordered the way he did.
did I wasted au$80?
Don't forget: both results done same time, same office, same lab!!! should i complain to someone , but whom???
At the practice, after i told him my self medicating with S-Thyroid.... he straight away told me to stop what i was doing (friendly tone) and take 1 NDT and half a t3. Blood test in 6 weeks, after the test, 2 NDT only and another test in 8 weeks after the first.
I am not converting t4 well enough that's why i got the t3. he said, because of the NDT my body (Thyroid) is converting better. I was kind of in shock, to take 2 NDTs as i never got up to more then 125 of t4.
Should I think positive about this new regime [in 6 weeks time?] ? 2-NDTs are ca 160-t4 and ca 20-t3 am I right?
BtW, my vit result are upper range thanks to vit supplements.
