Blood results

Blood results

Hi, I have had an underactive thyroid since my 20's and am now 46. The past year I have had a constant struggle with my health and wellbeing and seem to be always at the doctors for one thing or another. I now have scleritis with constant headaches and eye pain. I am just recovering from coldsores and a water infection.

My recent blood results show: 18.5 TSH, T4 14.1. I take 125mg Levothyroxine each day. Eosinophil 0.55 10*9l (0.04-.4410*9l), Basophil 0.14 10*9l (0-.1 10*9l) (These have been high for over a year) I take 180mg Fexofenadine each day.

I am exhausted and sick of feeling like a hypochondriac to the doctors!

Can anybody help? 🙏

Sorry - predictive text! I meant underactive*

Please edit your post and put in the ranges.

In addition put in the entire results of your full blood count. Just because something is in range doesn't mean it is optimal.

Then someone will come along and give you advice.

You are undermedicated.TSH needs to be about 1 or below.

I was only tested in August and it was 2.88 then, that seems a very quick change?

Have you had antibodies tested?

Sorry for the ignorance, but what is that?

Go to ThyroidUK home page.Select "About the Thyroid" from the left column and then select " Auto immune thyroiditis " there you will find the information.

They can fluctuate and that can be one reason for differing test results.
