Some mumsnet users sent me this way, as I am worried about thyroid levels (am 34 weeks pregnant and not greatly well. GP is confounded and - to be fair - doing all he can to check in on - is sending me to haemotologist and cardiologist but I think I need an endocrinologist and I need help a) ascertaining levels in pregnancy and b) convincing him
So during a round of tests to discover why I'm feeling so crap at 34w- I have what are supposedly normal thyroid results - see below, only just within nhs range according to lab results. GP does not mention them - I see them on the print out afterwards.
I understand that - actually - these aren't great for pregnancy (read stuff on the British Thyroid UK site)...I haven't been diagnosed with hypothyroidism before pregnancy, though have always thought might have it (ie results for Tsh historically on higher range; I have classic symptoms).
I also have a reasonably high inflammatory response that the GP can see on the tests. My body is reacting very badly to something ( I think to certain foods that contain preservatives) and I can feel an almost allergic response going on - my body feels like it's fighting something and under stress.
I seem to tick boxes for Hashimoto symptoms but obviously they're quite common symptoms in pregnancy too...
These are my results.
I would appreciate any responses on levels or how to approach GP - nice guidelines seem to refer to women who enter pregnancy with a recognised thyroid disorder and I'm having trouble finding out whether these results are just ok for people without recognised disorders.
I'm very worried that this has been overlooked and impact it could have on the baby. I realise that this might be a bit ott but feel so crap at the moment that I can't imagine it's great..,
