As lots of you will know I have been posting on here regarding 'normal' TSH levels and low Free T4. I have now had two sets of blood results taken in Nov that demonstrate low Free T4 levels (0.1 below the ranges given).
After 2 days of chasing my endo who hadn't even looked at bloods I had taken with her (on the 27th Nov) she has looked at them and come back to me saying everything is 'normal'. I asked for my Free T4 level on this set of bloods. She told me that my Free T4 was 9.7 and the range starts at 7.5 so nothing there that indicates I need any medication regardless of the fact that my other two sets of results were 0.1 lower than the range.
I had my Medichecks bloods done on exactly the same day as endo bloods. Results:
Free T4 11.9 Range 12-22
Free T4 9.7 Range 7.5 plus
Why is it that on one set of bloods my results are low and the other are 'normal' according to endo when they were taken on the same day?
My GP Free T4 result taken a couple of weeks before was 7.8 Range - 7.9 - 16.
I'm totally confused now as the endo said none of my problems are thyroid related (even though I questioned why I had already had 2 tests that month which show Low Free T4 results).
It was only a phone conversation as they are refusing to give me the results on paper. She said to have cortisol tests done now - not sure what that will reveal. Any ideas?
I have my GP tomorrow and now worried that the endo has a set of results that will contradict all the others I've had and they will refuse to treat anything.
Sorry to keep asking so many questions but I feel totally baffled now!
