Hi, here are my new results. I am 20 years old, female, and have been unwell for as long as I can remember. I had glandular fever when I was a child and there were more than one occasions where I was unwell with vomiting and diarrhoea.
I had a thyroid blood test done in January 2017 which showed a TSH above range 6.2 (0.2 - 4.2) and FT4 13.7 (12 - 22) and FT3 4.0 (3.1 - 6.8) no treatment was given and I was told the levels meant I was hyperthyroid. However I have been getting many hypothyroid symptoms and I have taken the ones from the Thyroid UK symptoms list: excessive tiredness, slow movements, slow speech, pins and needles, breathlessness, palpitations, anaemia, insomnia, loss of libido, repeated urinary tract infections, heavy eyelids, hoarse voice, muscle cramps and stiffness, goitre, cold intolerance, diminished sweating, vertigo, balance problems, dizziness, puffy eyes and face, choking fits, dry mouth, sore throats, difficulty swallowing numbness and hands and feet and legs, memory loss, poor concentration, lack of confidence, tinnitus, deafness, heavy periods, low fertility, slow pulse, headaches, dry skin, eczema, carpal tunnel syndrome, brittle and flaky nails, body hair loss and head hair loss, brittle hair, eyebrow loss and eyelash loss.
I also have low B12, low folate, low vitamin D and low ferritin and low calcium. Only thing is I haven't gained weight so the GP has considered this a red herring and he thinks I have coeliac disease. I had infantile eczema when I was child, as well and this has continued mildly into my early years as a young adult. I was sent for an ultrasound scan on my thyroid which showed a damaged and hypoechoic gland.
My new results are below and I have been started on 50mcg Levothyroxine and due a retest in 6-8 weeks.
Any advice about what to do next would be appreciated, thank you.
