I'd be so grateful if someone in the know can decipher my current blood results. The Blue Horizon test laboratory states my results are showing as hyperthyroid with higher T4 and low TSH, my T3 is on the low end of normal range so must not convert well. I have been hypothyroid for 15 years with all the symptoms that go with it. If I am hyper why am I gaining weight and feel sluggish etc etc? I don't have hyper symptoms apart from the odd hot flush ( I am the younger end of menopausal age). People I have known who are hyper loose weight effortlessly, for me it's a real battle. They also say my B12 is elevated. I supplement so need to back off with that. Apparently, my antibodies are up too and say I could either have Hashimoto's or Graves (I don't seem to have Graves symptoms, but if I am not now showing as hypo how can I have Hashi as I thought that is a hypo condition??)
Anyway, here are the results as listed:
B12 963pg/ml 197-771
Folate 11.9 ug/L 2.9
Ferritin 40.0 ug/L 13-50
TOTAL T4 116 nmol/L 59-154
TSH 0.04 MIU/L 0.27- 4.2
FREE T4 23.4 pmol/L 12.0- 22.0
FREE T3 4.3 pmol/L 3.1- 6.8
VIT D 83 nmol/L 50-200
THYROGLOBULIN 454 IU/ml 0-115 ANTIBODY
THYROID PEROXIDASE 253.0 IU/ml 0-34 ANTIBODIES
Note: I presume the ranges on the right are the so called 'normal' ranges!?
Please can anyone interpret these for me...
