I posted a short time ago the results of GP blood tests that were TSH level is 4.91 (range 0.35-5.50) T4 is 9.2 (range 7.86-14.41). My GP put me on 25mg thyroxine to see if it'd help my symptoms even though he think it's depression causing it, and I've since paid for private tests to get a clearer picture.
I've just got the results back but I'm really not sure what to make of them. The results are in range, just, and I'm guessing I don't have an autoimmune reason for elevated levels?? I've had other tests done for vitamins d, b's, ferritin etc and they're all either high or above range. If anyone can help shed some light I'd really appreciate it. Is it likely my thyroid causing me these symptoms?
These are the private results:
