Like most on here I've decided to get private blood tests done to see if I can find out why I feel so awful. These are the results and I was looking for thoughts and feedback...
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 4.1 mIU/L (0.27 - 4.20)
FREE THYROXINE(T4) 12.4 pmol/L (12.00 - 22.00)
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 74.2 nmol/L (59.00 - 154.00)
FREE T3 5.01 pmol/L (3.10 - 6.80)
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY <10 IU/mL (0.00 - 115.00)
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES <9.0 IU/mL (0.00 - 34.00)
(Ferritin, Folate and B12 all well within normal ranges for me)
My vitamin D was 52 a couple of months ago and my Dr suggested I take over-the-counter supplements to try and get this level up during the winter.
As you can see the thyroid tests are all "normal" although the TSH and FT4 are borderline.
I have loads of Hypothyroid symptoms but I don't know if these test results warrant further investigation.
I know my GP would say no and tell me it's all fine and nothing to see here! Maybe he is right.
But if he's not and if I did want to investigate further, who would I see and what could I do?
British Thyroid Foundation shows TSH range to 4.0 so does that mean I might be taken more seriously if mine is just above?
