I really need some help please as I think my GP is not being very helpful. I had a private blood test done for my Thyroid 2 weeks ago which showed my Peroxidase antibodies were over range My TSH was 5.46 over their range and Free Thyroxine was below range. I thought this would be enough for a diagnosis. I went to the GP with these results and she said she would need to repeat all these tests.
I had the blood test last week with the but the GP only did 3 basic tests. These are the results of their one:
Thyroid function test
Serum TSH level 2.69 mu/L [0.35 - 4.94]
Serum free T4 level 15.6 pmol/L [9.0 - 19.0]
Thyroid autoantibody level
Serum thyroid peroxidase antibody concentration 441.00 iu/mL [< 5.61]
Above high reference limit
The GP has told me on the phone that the above results are all normal and they will repeat my test in 6 months time. She said my antibodies being raised just means I am at higher risk for the future.
Can people please advise on what I should do next I don't want to wait for 6 months of feeling really ill. This GP surgery has referred me to an Endocrinologist the referral went out in July. I don't know how long this appointment will take. I really need to know what to do now because I probably won't be able to afford another private blood test again. I really feel this GP is not listening and just argues with everything I say. Can someone please advise on what would be my next steps to take with getting my Thyroid sorted.
I look forward to any replies. Thanks
