Hi I’m currently under endrocoligst for a while now and my level is surrpressd 003 just got these results today, I’ve had no medication since this all began last year and now waiting results from nuclear scan I had last week, my doctor just said t4 normal and other is 003. I said do I have Graves’ disease he’s unsure
Confused : Hi I’m currently under endrocoligst... - Thyroid UK
You need FT3 and FT4, TT4 and Thyroid antibodies tested
Trab or TSI antibodies for Graves
TPO and TG for Hashimoto’s (can also be present in Graves)
Also important to test vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12
Post results and ranges when you have them
Just TSH tells nothing
Nodules don't normally cause problems. Have you had a thyroid scan? But, if your FT4 is 'normal', it's doubtful you have Grave's. A suppressed TSH on its own, don't automatically mean hyperthyroidism.
Is that your first test? Do you have results from any other tests you've had in the last two years?
Hi no it’s not my first test, my bloods last year was saying I was borderline overactive, I’ve had X-ray, fine needle biopsy and last week nuclear scan, waiting on results from last scan, my bloods have remained the same until now it was 0.09. Now 0.03
But, that's your TSH. TSH isn't even a thyroid hormone, it's a pituitary hormone, and can be affected by many things. What about your FT4? Has that been tested before, and was it ever over-range? A TSH on its own is meaningless.
I’ll find out I get very confused with results
I’m going to surgery to collect them
Is there a way of uploading a picture
Here goes serum free T4 level 17.1
Serum TSH level 0.03 next to this is 0.27-4.2
OK, so your TSH is suppressed, but your FT4 doesn't look that high. But, we need the range to know. You've given the range for the TSH, the numbers next to the result, do you have the same for the FT4?
