This is a bit of a pointless post so feel free to skip lol but I posted recently and gave two lots of my blood results for opinions (there were loads of helpful replies). Having only tested for TCH and fT4 I was recommended to try a private test.
I finally built up the courage (I’m such a wimp) to stab myself with the lancet this morning (phew!!) and results go in the post today for thyroid + vits (Medicheck) so when these are through I’ll post for advice.
In the meantime I’ve had my thyroid function tests back from the gp and these are now within ‘normal’ range. No further action required apparently.
TCH 0.24 (0.2-4.5)
FT4 12.9 (9-24)
I was originally diagnosed as hyper and told I have Graves. Given carbimazole and sent in my way. I complained my symptoms were more hypo than hyper but was told to carry on.
I reduced then stopped taking the carbimazole as it was making me feel awful and I’ve been off it for a few months and it would appear my results have stabilised? Would you agree?
I now wonder if I ever had a thyroid problem in the first place. I was suffering from tachycardia (other heart issues rules out) but nothing much else.
My bloods don’t look like the hypo results I’ve seen on here either.
I am awaiting the results from Medicheck as this will show antibodies and any vitamin deficiencies (struggled with B12 in the past) -and hopefully give more answers.
I suspect that if I have anything it’s hashi’s but I’m fairly convinced now I’m not hyper. I put on a stone in a month and have a host of other hypo symptoms now but maybe it’s not related at all and I’m just getting older!
