Hello. I'm new to this community and hope I'm doing this right.
I was diagnosed with fibromyalgia over a decade ago, and then with chronic fatigue. My GP tells me that my symptoms all point to an under active thyroid, but that our local health authority won't allow her to run a full screening for thyroid issues, so after she'd sent me for the most basic testing there was nothing she could do. I paid for a private blood test, and now have all my results back, but my GP is now on maternity leave and the other GPs in the practice won't even look at the results. I'd be grateful if anyone could take a look at the results I got, and let me know if all is ok. The blood test people said in their report that everything is within normal limits, but having read up on what the UK's normal limits are, I'm not sure that's a useful comment.
The results are in wobbly columns, like this:
Test / my level / normal levels
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 2.29 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 15.8 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
FREE T3 4.96 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80
REVERSE T3 21 ng/dL 10.00 - 24.00
REVERSE T3 RATIO 15.38 15.01 - 75.00
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY <10 IU/mL 0.00 - 115.00
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 14.6 IU/mL 0.00 - 34.00
Does all that look ok to everyone who knows what these numbers all mean? I'm just overwhelmed by it all and can't work out what any of it tells me. Thank you for your help and advice.
