I have finally had blood tests and have my results from Blue horizon.
I was diagnose hypothyroid about 15 years ago and was treated with levothyroxine which built up to and remained at 100mcg. I changed over to NDT a couple of years ago and have just muddled on, I'd say I was doing ok but knew my health was certainly not optimal.
I have haven't been so good the last 12 months, hair loss and weight gain again hence the tests, here are my results, I would really appreciate your advice, thank you.
(I have copied and pasted all info)
Vitamin B12 503 pg/ml 197 - 771
Note amended reference range due to change to
Gen II assay.
Folate (serum) 5.8 ug/L > 2.9
Note new reference range effective 03/04/2017.
If no change in dietary habits,a normal serum
folate makes folate deficiency unlikely.
FERRITIN 149 ug/L 13 - 150
C Reactive protein 1.3 mg/L <5.0
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) * 49 nmol/L 59 - 154
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE * 7.04 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE * 8.3 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3 3.9 pmol/L 3.1 - 6.8
25 OH Vitamin D 133 nmol/L 50 - 200
Interpretation of results:
Deficient <25 nmol/L
Insufficient 25 - 49 nmol/L
Normal Range 50 - 200 nmol/L
Consider reducing dose >200 nmol/L
THYROID ANTIBODIES .
Thyroglobulin Antibody 16.7 IU/mL 0-115
Method used for Anti-Tg: Roche Modular
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies * 295.9 IU/mL 0 - 34
Thyroid microsomal antibody assays using
semi-quantitative agglutination titres are no
longer available, and the more specific and
quantitative assay for antibodies to thyroid
peroxidase will now be the only assay used.
These assays are clinically equivalent and have
been offered in parallel for several years.
REVERSE T3 13 ng/dL 10 - 24
