Hi. Quick update. Went to my GP with results of my private medicheck thyroid tests today (test results and ranges at bottom of post). My GP basically said that it could be that my thyroid is on its way to becoming hypo but he would not give me medication as it could put me the other way and to wait until my TSH level is really high. When I told him how frustrated I was with living with these symptoms he eventually agreed to send me to an endocrinologist. The NHS appointment would take around 9 months apparently so I asked for the referral to go the private Nuffield Spire Hospital in Edinburgh.
This will be expensive and I don't want to spend lots of money for the endo just to say the same thing as my GP. Has anyone got any experience of the endocrinologist's in Edinburgh.
I am thinking of self medicating and monitoring the results myself through Medichecks instead?
TSH 4.6 (0.27 - 4.20)
TT4 90.1 (59-154)
FT4 13.8 (12-22)
FT3 4.32 (3.1-6.8)
TGAB 55 (0-115)
TPOAB 176 (0-34iu/ml)
Any help is appreciated. I have already started a gluten free diet and trying to optimise my vitamin levels. Thanks
