Hi, I'm new here. I have coronary heart disease and in March 2016 was tested for thyroid problems, as my brother has under active thyroid. Results -
TSH - 6.9, T4 - 15.3, doctors rang and told me to have another blood test in 3 months - results: TSH - 6.4, T4 - 11.7, TPO - 1000. Then called into doctors, who told me that I would most likely in the future develop hypothyroidism and gave me a print out with info.
In Aug 2017 with some reluctance was put on 25mg Levothyroxine and to have another blood test in 8 weeks results: TSH - 4.4 (0.30-6.00), T4 - 13.1 ( 10.40-24.50)
Had full bloods done in Sept 1017 - Vit D, Anemia, Celiac, thyroid, doctor said all satisfactory apart from serum tibc ( saturation iron binding - 17% ( 20-55%) given a course of iron.
Sorry, a bit long winded, nearly done
Last blood test TSH - 4, T4 - 13, TPO 1000 (0-35)
when I asked about another blood test, said no, also asked to levo on repeat, receptionist said I wouldn't be stopping on them!
Is it because I have a heart disease? Your thoughts please
