A friend on here posted on my behalf a few weeks ago with the following results...
I have appoitment with Endicronologist on Monday
February 2018 (tested around 10-11am)
TSH 1.1 (0.34 - 5.6)
FT4 9.6 (7.5 - 21.1)
FT3 4.6 3.8 - 6.😎
TPO 29 (0 - 9)
Folate 10.1 (3.1 - 19.9)
Ferritin 40 (11 - 336)
B12 661 (187 - 883)
Vitamin D 28
At this stage I was given 20,000ui Vit D per week for 2 months and iron tablets.
I had another blood test in May 2018 (again around 10-11am)
TSH 1.32 (0.34 - 5.6)
FT4 8.5 (7.5 - 21.1)
FT3, TPO, Folate, Ferritin, B12 not tested
Vitamin D 150
My GP said they couldn't see anything wrong and so I asked to see an endo' for a second opinion (booked for 16th July).
Looking at the thyroid 'symptom list' on TUK I have a lot of them, in particular weight gain, VERY heavy periods, extreme fatigue, bad memory problems, leg cramping at night, hairloss. My GP has already diagnosed me with severe depression & anxiety.
I am under enormous strain caring for my elderly mother who has dementia. I was taking iron tablets for low ferritin for 2 month, and am on Tranexamic Acid to try to reduce the heavy periods. I've had a negative test for fibroids so they can't find a reason for my heavy periods. I was on antidepressants but stopped taking them about 9 months ago as I felt they weren't helping.
When my friend posted on here for me I was advised to go back to my GP to get FT3 included in my thyroid blood tests, plus all the other essentials, in order for you to possibly be able to help me going forward, plus preparing me for my upcoming endo' appointment. There was also mention that my GP isn't considering other forms of hypothyroidism (central / secondary / pituarity). So I have been back to my GP to be retested and here are my results.
TSH 1.13 (0.34 - 5.6)
FT4 8 (7.5 - 21.1)
FT3 4.3 (3.8 - 6.😎
TPO 27 (0 - 9)
FERRITIN 36 (11 - 336)
FOLATE 9.3 (3.1 - 19.9)
VIT D 78
B12 638 (187 - 883)
