First appointment with private endo

Hi all

Had my first appointment with a private endo today. Has asked for me to have full thyroid panel. Went because in

October tsh was 1.79

December was 30

This was on levothyroxine 50mcg.

Was happy he actually went over all my blood test since I been diagnosed and agrees something isn’t adding up. As my tsh increasing but t4 staying same.

Some of what he said did go over my head but he has a few ideas he wants to investigate e.g viral infection of thyroid, another autoimmune disease present, problems with receptors . Interestingly also change in brand of tablet.

We shall see if this is worth the money

So blood tests came back and endo says all is fine. But I’m concerned about my t3.

It is 1.3 but there is no reference range?
