I have had a couple of Blue Horizon tests. Thought I’d try a medi checks test and pay for RT3. Interesting. Although for some reason they don’t think I have Hashimoto’s which makes me doubt ALL of their results because every other test says I have !
I would be grateful for comments.
I am having another phase of headache, dizziness and a weight on my chest feeling as well as the more usual aches and pains and the “ mill stone round my neck “ fatigue feeling which have started since this blood test. I had been taking vitamins and minerals ( selenium, b12, D3 and B plus some evening primrose or cod liver oil ) but stopped about 4 weeks before this blood test to get a true picture.
Any thoughts ? Particularly on the Hashimotos but also on RT3/ft3 ratio.The notes suggest COPD, liver disease, diabetes and heart failure or low calorie diets can cause difficulties converting thyroxine to T3 and cause rT3 to rise.
Any thoughts, comments, help gratefully accepted. Clutter, Greygoose and Hashihouseman plus Seaside Susie and Jim111 have all helped in the past — and others whose names have escaped me.
Sorry for the long post.
