I have posted about my daughter before. She is now 19 and has had several mildly hypo and "borderline" thyroid results over the last year or so. GP was unable apparently to do test for antibodies. I have fought and arranged phone call appts with the GP's after getting my daughters consent ,she is "of age", to speak to them about my concerns which included a concern for her growth rate and some other issues. I have been very worried that they have been affected by the thyroid and it possibly having been an issue for her far longer realised. The GP told me the NHS does not do preventative medicine when I first took her in with my concerns a couple years ago.
Now that I have got someone taking notice the new GP has done some tests for which the results came back a few days ago. I am confused because what has been flagged are a couple hormonal/oestrogen issues. The test result paper for those is not as easy to read or understand as the other more common blood tests and I know little about these issues except what I have "googled" the last couple days. Does anyone have any experience or knowledge of these or what could possibly mean?
Serum LH level 0.3 IU/l
FSH 0.3 IU/l
There are others on the sheet but it does not say if they are ok or not, however the GP told me her oestrogen was low as was her lueutinising ovulation level.
I spoke briefly to the GP on the phone who said she has spoken to Endo and she read me a reply she received from them (very quickly) which said something along the lines of " you are right that Levothyroxine would not be right at this point but she definitely needs to have her antibodies checked as she could be about to go completely hypo" and they requested more tests be done to which she has gone this morning.
Annoyingly despite asking and reminding numerous times when a copy of the test results was collected the GP has forgotten to print out the thyroid results however she said they were ok which I suspect is that they are the same as they were previously which was right on the line between ok and low. Of the results I did receive were also that the creatinine is a little low and the AKI says "above range" though it is at 0.
Any help appreciated.
