Hi Im new here, Please help! - High TGAB, low T3.
Can anyone help me please.. I've been feeling increasingly unwell. I've had fibromyalgia for 7 years, I recently got my thyroid privately tested and it shows that I have the following results..
TPO AB 9.0 ref range (0.00 - 34.00)
TGAB at 160,000 ref range (0.00 - 115.00)
My TSH is 1.65 ref range (0.27-4.20)
Free thyroxine 14 ref range (12.00 - 22.00)
Total T4 92.9 ref range (59.00 - 154.00)
Free T3 4.4 ref range ( 3.10 - 6.80)
Reverse T3 20 ref range ( 10.00 - 24.00)
Reverse T3 ratio 14.32 ref range (15.01 - 75.00)
Active B12 189.4 ref range (25.10 - 165.00) but I have been supplementing as I was previously low.
Folate serum 8.05 ref range (2.91 - 50.00)
Vitamin D 125 ref range (50.00 - 200.00)
Ferritin 57.1 ref range (13.00 - 150.00)
CRP 1.2 ref range (0.00 - 5.00)
My endocrinologist says these results are normal and indicates nothing except that genetically I may be at higher risk of developing a thyroid issue in the future. He is not concerned about my T3 levels and says they are normal but when I Google it says they are not and the lab have flagged them up too.
I also have a thyroid nodule which we screened and apparently also normal, not due to have another scan for 18 months time.
I am on no medication or treatment whatsoever.
Today my eyes are puffed up and my left lid has dropped so looks half shut. I am so fatigued I am struggling to stay awake despite a very heavy nights sleep. I have major brain fog.
I am overweight, my face is puffy, my eyelids are swollen and to me I look unrecognisable.
I keep getting optical aura migraines upon waking, experiencing bouts of racing heart beats, headaches and high blood pressure which my doc says is just anxiety,
I just don't know where if anywhere can I get Help? Xx
