Please help me interpret my confusing results:-
Vitamin B12- 657 (197-771)
c Reactive protein-11.1(<5.0)
25 OH VitaminD 190(50-200)
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies-18.3(0-34)
Reverse T3----insufficient sample to assay!
Please take into account that I have recently (3 weeks ago) finished a powerful course of steroid tablets over a 4 week period to treat an itchy rash which started on my lower leg and rapidly spread covering most of my body and causing swollen lower legs and subcutaneous inflammation in the legs. This was diagnosed as 'excema', has almost gone but has left me with reddened skin and slight swelling to my legs with mild itchiness which now looks very much like pretibial myxedema, a symptom of thyroid imbalance.
Prior to this infection my hypothyroidism was reasonably well controlled by self medication of 100mcg T4 plus 50mcg T3 daily. I am now less energetic and unable to walk more than 100m uphill without resting. I am 72.
I had my blood test at 10am., 22 hours after taking T4 and T3.
These latest results have really thrown me.
Please advise how I might address them.
