Thyroid Check UltraVit 06 Dec 2017
I note that you have a thyroid condition but it is not clear from your notes what this is and whether you are taking medication for it.
Your thyroid stimulating hormone, thyroxine and T3 are all normal which suggest healthy thyroid function.
Your thyroglobulin antibodies are positive. This can be associated with autoimmune thyroid disease and in particular Hashimoto’s disease.
Your thyroid peroxidase antibodies are normal.
Your levels of vitamin B12 and folate are normal.
Your vitamin D levels are bordering on insufficient. This may progress to vitamin D insufficiency or deficiency if you don’t take steps to increase your vitamin D levels.
We recommend supplementing with 400 - 800 iu of vitamin D per day for twelve weeks. If you are already taking vitamin D then I recommend that you increase your dose.
Your CRP level is normal, indicating normal levels of inflammation in the body.
Your ferritin level is normal.

I would appreciate your views on these tests. This case is 40 yrs old I have complained of brain fog /depression .To me the thyroid has been malfunctioning for all of this time , I was diagnosed in 1994 with an overactive gland received RAI which made it underactive and I complained that I felt a lot worse but because the hospital. blood test showed I was within the range I was discharged. Since 1994 I have been on 100mcg of Thyroxine now down to 75mcg.
I am very disheartened by this report because once again the doctor at Medichecks says that my Thyroid is healthy within the range which is exactly the same level of conversation as the NHS. I got their details from the Thyroid UK website so what is different about them.
