requested a telephone call from my doctor wish I had taped the conversation -
Medication T 4 100 mg daily :
T3 = 4.00 range ( 3.1 - 6.8 )
T4 = 20.25 range (10 - 22 )
Q - should I have another blood test before see endocrinology in August ? -
A - yes, just have a TSH -
Q - what do you think about the last blood test results ? Am thinking that I may have a conversion problem - my T3 is in the bottom of its range and my T4 is at the top of its range they are not in balance - would a test for reverse T3 be an idea ?
A - Well, I disagree with you there, your T3 is half way and you have some T3 so that's ok
Q - Did you send my working papers to the endo as promised when I last saw you ?
A - Well, I asked them to, don't know if it happened, well, just write it out again and send it in advance, though doubt the endo will have time to read it and very much doubt there will be time at appointment to discuss them -
So, there we are, my working papers ( 5 pages ) contain 3 sheets of charts
highlighting my fluctuating temperature through the day, suggesting my adrenals are compromised due to the long standing health issues I have been suffering since RAI and being medicated solely by levothyroxine T 4:
Need to rant - sorry - will go and cut something down in the garden !!!!!!!
