Sorry, ive posted before but it seems to have gotten lost and i cant access it after replying to the original thread... so trying again. Had my thryorid checked last week. THS was 0.261 and T4 was 7.8
B12 and everything came back fine. Iron is quite low so I've been given iron tablets. But that's all.
Doctor today said it's not low enough to warrant concern and I'm only just displaying under active results. She's sent me away and wants to re check in 6 weeks. She said if they've not dropped anymore itll be just a case of keeping an eye on it. I asked why both my results were low as usual in an underactive thyroid one is high ans one os low (?) and she just brushed it aside and said my THS levels could be from a recent infection.. which, to my knowledge, I've not had anything or been unwell. Didn't mention my t4 levels.
Just curious how low they need to drop before they will act? And should they be looking into the fact both results are low? I didn' have my ft3 tested or anything.. would I be better off requesting these too?
