Just went to the surgery to register, but didn't have ID with me, so have to go back. However I mentioned that I wanted to look at my blood test results, and the receptionist printed some up for me there and then.
When the doctor started me on Levo, on 22nd May this year, my results were S thyroid peroxidase ab conc 254 iu/ml (0-50) (RS16748) >75 iu/ml. Serum TSH 9.9 mu/L (9-24). Serum Free T4 12.1 pmol/L.
The receptionist also printed up test results from April last year 2017. and the peroxidase result were 435, suggestive of autoimmune thyroid disease. TSH was 6.7 and T4 12.4, All same lab figures.
I am guessing that the Doc was only going by the TSH of 6.7 and when it reached 9.9 this year he decided to put me on meds. If that is the case, what a waste of time for me and my health, could have started on treatment years ago maybe? When I get full access to my records, it should make interesting reading!
Up to 50 on Levo, blood test next week. A bit up and down, mainly down though.!
