Hi, would anyone mind having a look at my levels please, and give me any advice as to what I need to say to the Endo that I’ve finally been referred to.
These were taken late April along with the attached photo of FBC, LFT.
Serum glucose level 9.8. Normal 3.5-7.8
Serum TSH 6.2mu/l. Normal 0.4-5.5 Outside range.
Serum free T4 level 12.6 pmo/l. 11-26 within range.
Due to the high glucose level, I had to have two repeat fasting tests of which the results were
Normal range being 3-6 but I was fobbed off with the usual look after your weight etc.
Further tests 8.5.18.
Thyroid peroxidase antibody 14 iu/ml <50
Vit D 49.6 30-50 insufficient.
I started the menopause early at 39, (I’m 41 now). and I have an autoimmune disease, RA, my mother also has RA and Peri and is hypo.
Also I believe, thyroid issues are also related to diabetes, which GP said I might be at risk of.
I had printed a sheet of hypo symptoms off and pink highlighted all relevant ones. The sheet was 70% pink!
I’ve had TSH done again today as requested by the consultant and TSH has dropped to 4.3!!!!
Is it all in my head?
Thanks in advance.
