Hello im a 34 year old female,
I've had bloods took over the last few years and my tsh has been in the 2.36-4.59 over the last few years mainly in the 2s.
Once it went up to 8.96 which docs have told me I don't need meds.
But because I've paid for private tests and the private doctors has said "I note that you have had raised thyroid markers in the past and these results are similar and may suggest that your thyroid is becoming underactive though it may also just be a transient change. An underactive thyroid can cause symptoms such as weight gain, low mood, lethargy, hair and skin problems. As you are suffering similar symptoms, you may wish to discuss these results with your GP. Otherwise, you may wish to assess the trend and repeat this test in 3-6 months".
So I've gone to my doctor and he said I can give you levothyroxine this is the doctor who has said that I didn't need any meds even when my tsh was in the 8s.
I got frustrated with him and the rest of the doctors who I have seen.
I could cry I just want to know what's going on.
Do I need meds can i do this naturally?
Here are my latest bloods I've paid private as my doctors just tell me it's anxiety I'm so mad that they do this.
CRP - HIGH SENSITIVITY 0.97 mg/l 0.00 - 5.00
IRON 18.1 umol/L 6.60 - 26.00
T.I.B.C 58.3 umol/L 41.00 - 77.00
TRANSFERRIN SATURATION 31.05 % 20.00 - 55.00
FERRITIN 34.2 ug/L 13.00 - 150.00
MAGNESIUM 0.95 mmol/L 0.60 - 1.00
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE *4.59 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.20
FREE THYROXINE 15.100 pmol/L 12.00 - 22.00
FREE T3 5.02 pmol/L 3.10 - 6.80

FOLATE (SERUM) 5.1 ug/L 2.91 - 50.00
25 OH VITAMIN D 61.6 nmol/L 50.00 - 200.00
Is there any other tests I need to try and get? To get a better picture.
I also have raised EOSINOPHILS *0.55 x10^9/L 0.00 - 0.40
Its been raised for years the private doctor has said "You have an elevated level of eosinophils. This is commonly seen in allergy and in diseases like asthma and eczema. If you have any of these conditions then I would not worry about this result. It can also occasionally be caused by intestinal parasites, if you are experiencing any bowel symptoms then I recommend checking a stool sample for ova, cysts and parasites. If you are symptom free and don't think you have asthma or eczema then I recommend a repeat test in 3 months time. If your eosinophils remain raised we will recommend further advice at that time.
Yes I'm having bowel issues quite bad too for around 4 month now, but apparently we do not have parasites in the UK and can only have the test if I have been abroad.
Can anyone help.
