Finally obtained my test results from GP

Finally obtained my test results from GP

It took about 3 weeks but I have them....

Anyone fancy trying to interpret these? My plan was to privately re-test my Thyroid in December (approx 3 months after the first lot to rule out thyroid levels being impacted due to illness/viral recovery)

I can only post one picture but I have these results from the GP also:

WBC 5.4

RBC 4.72

HGB 141

Hct 41.8

MCV 88.6

MCH 29.9

MCHC 337

PLT 250

RDW 12.7

Neut 2.81

Lymp 1.83

Mono 0.59

Eos 0.12

Baso 0.03

Following these test from the GP I went and had my own thyroid tests done and the results are below. (The private Medicheck tests were done about a week and a half after the GP tests). I have no follow up with the GP and no plan moving forward. My hair is still falling out at a rapid pace but thankfully for the past few weeks I haven't had any viral infections (which has been so nice) so starting to feel more normal again.

THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 4.11 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20

FREE THYROXINE 16.1 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00

TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 82.1 nmol/L 59.00 - 154.00

FREE T3 4.48 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80

THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY <10 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00

THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 9.12 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00

Many thanks in advance :-)

Hd7481,

Your TSH has been been gradually rising since 2013 and TSH >2.0 indicates thyroid is beginning to struggle. 4.11 is high in range. Did you have the tests done at the same time of day? Free thyroxine and Free T3 are currently good.

Ask your GP to recheck levels in 6 months and arrange an early morning blood draw when TSH is highest and fast (water only) as TSH drops after eating and drinking.

Thyroglobulin and thyroid peroxidase antibodies are negative for autoimmune thyroiditis (Hashimoto's).

Ferritin is optimal halfway through range so 49 is a bit low. You can raise ferritin by supplementing iron with 1,000mg vitamin C to aid absorption and minimise constipation.

The other tests done on 29/8/17 are within range (normal). I can't tell about the full blood count results you typed because you haven't included the lab ref ranges.
