Hi all When I am in the room with my GP he is great. Tryng to get any sense out of staff on phone is hopeless. I cannot get any info about Thyroid test other than
TSH 0.005 mU/L 034 - 5-5 60 mU/L and T4 24.6
I have blood results of
HDL cholesterol 2.02
LDL cholesterol 5.56
Total cholesterol HDL ratio 4.5
non HDL cholesterol 7.15
Vit D serum 25 - HO vit D3 level 70.3
Does anyone know if these levels are good? They all say NORMAL. Starting to loathe that word.
Have got other things on list liver renal sodium potassium and more! PLEASE can anyone tell me which test kit to get. Can I get one with just the thyroid hormones being as I have got the above or do I neeed to get those done again. My GP will help me if I can get a doctor to say I need T3 if I do Will write me a script get it from abroad etc. He has tried to help me after years of badly medicated thyroid leading to 6 emergency hospital admins with bowel failure. He has agreed not to cut levels even if they run high But I used to be on T3 and this was stopped by endo who dealt with me after emergency admins. GP did lower my T4 as he was scared by level but says he will listen to me after that went belly up! My BP has come down blood sugar down chol was down but has gone up. I dont feel well. I cant lose weight. I lost 2 stone but now no progress with remaining 3 stone. I am weary. I hurt all over my eyes are burning My feet are burning My legs and shoulders are agonising despite strong pain patches. I cant sleep I am depressed and despondent.
I have had great help on here but I am tech useless and my brain is really fuzzy and I am confused. I lose the great posts people have sent to me. Kind people have shown me them but I still cant find them. OH has had massive issue with e mail and other tech stuff that has added to confusion.
I am so sorry to take up time and I hope I do not seem to be ungrateful for all the help I am. I just can't retain info or fnd it agan!
My plan is to get one of the tests and someone gave me a link which I cannot find! I want to know which I need to get. Also how to do the Thyroid Thursday thing. Have decided to borrow money to see private thyroid expert. My GP is great but obvs does not have the expertise or time to sort me. Have been ill for most of my life due to med negligence and arrogant docs not listening. Have also had great docs help me move forward. I am 65 now. Being older makes it all harder to deal with. I want to do all I can to be well in old age.
Sorry to go on and ask same questions but can't find anything! At end of tether. Hope to be able to give something back to you all one day.
