Hi Everyone, new here.
I had a blood test done by Blue Horizon Medicals as suggested by Thyroid UK as I've never trusted my GP practice to give me the answers I need as I have Fibromyalgia and every new symptom I get is attributed to it.
I am seeing my GP tomorrow with a copy of the results but I'm still a little bamboozled by what they actually mean, especially at the TOTAL THYROXINE (T4) is normal, but some of the other results are not. Can anyone shed a bit of light before I see my GP. That would be a great help.
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 105 nmol/L (59 - 154)
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE * 0.04 mIU/L (0.27 - 4.2)
FREE THYROXINE * 22.8 pmol/l (12.0 - 22.0)
FREE T3 6.8 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
Thyroglobulin Antibody * 487.0 IU/mL (0-115)
Method used for Anti-Tg: Roche Modular
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies * 115.0 IU/mL (0 - 34)
Thyroid microsomal antibody assays using
semi-quantitative agglutination titres are no longer available, and the more specific and quantitative assay for antibodies to thyroid peroxidase will now be the only assay used. These assays are clinically equivalent and have been offered in parallel for several years.
Thanks in advance, hopefully looking to feel a lot better than I have of late.
