Can anyone advise re Thyroid Check Plus results from Medichecks?
A bit of background: I’m about 4 weeks into a trail of Levothyroxine 25mcg (no effects good or bad being felt yet) which it seems I was lucky to get with a TSH of less than 10! I am now gluten free after getting some great advice here. I’m taking (or researching) the supplements I was advised to check.
I had these done following recent NHS tests (TSH & FT4 only), to try and get a better idea of what’s going on with my Thyroid.
So, my questions are :
FT4 and FT3 are both equally low in the range, does this indicate I’m converting FT4 OK? Or is it not that simple?
Also, do the antibodies confirm Hashimoto’s? The covering note from the Doctor at Medichecks said the antibodies were ‘associated’ with Hashimoto’s. How else can you get confirmation of Hashimoto’s?
