Hyper or not?

Hi. I’ve written before but I now have my blood results. 2 gps are not concerned but one referred me to endo and she sent me for an ultrasound scan where I was told my thyroid was slightly enlarged and I had some nodules. I am waiting for a biopsy. The endo put me on Carbimazole 5mg a day.

Serum free T4 level 13.1 range (10.00 - 18.70)

Serum THS level 0.09 range (0.30 - 5.00)

Serum free T3 level 4.8 range (2.50 - 5.50)

So I am a bit puzzled. I have lot a stone very quickly but was put on sertraline 50mg 6 weeks ago and it made me nauseous and stopped my appetite.

I have been on Carbimazole for 5 days and I am still nauseous. It might be anxiety as I was told this week I have a nodule in my pelvic floor. As i’ve Had ovaries, tubes and a borderline ovarian tumour removed in March, I am very worried. I will know more next week but the wait is hard.

Any replies would be appreciated. Thanks

Could Carbimazole make me nauseous nd bloated?


Are these the results that led to you being put on carbimazole?





Are those results from before you started Carbimazole or after?




Your results look slightly unusual to me (I’m a historian, not a doctor) but I don’t see how you can be hypER with both FT4 and FT3 well in range.


So what am I to do now? Get in touch with the endocrinologist ‘s secretary with a query?


Definitely not HYPER. Possibly hypo or going that way because of low free T4 - wonder about secondary/central hypo - low everything - or the end of a Hashi's flare. Carbi will make you very ill, I suspect, as your Frees will drop off the bottom of the range. I would ask for a second opinion.
