I had more thyroid tests done recently because my new dr said some of my last test results early this year were "borderline" .. Mainly TSH. The former thyroid tests were ordered by my previous doctor who told me everything is normal & said nothing about borderline.
Here are the two sets of test results. Reference ranges are in parentheses.
T3 uptake 39.0 (30-39%)
T4 Free 1.04 (0.78-1.34 ng/mL)
TSH 0.72 (0.36-3.74 m?iU?/mL)
TSH 0.916 (0.45-4.5 uIU/mL)
Triiodothyronine (T3) 111 (71-180 ng/dL)
T4, Free, (Direct) 1.57 (0.82-1.77 ng/dL)
Thyroid Peroxidase (TPO) Ab 22 (0 - 34 IU/mL)
Thyroglobulin Antibody 4.9 (0.0 - 0.9 IU/mL)
After the September test the nurse called me and said everything is normal. However, looking over the results myself, I noticed that the lab flagged the thyroglobulin antibody as being high. Is that truly something to be dismissed as normal? From what I've been reading , it's an indication of Hashimotos.?
Does anyone have any information or ideas for me? I'm sick of trying to tell the dr something is wrong when she just tells me everything is normal.. Not sure how to proceed from here.
Some symptoms I deal with: fatigue, brain fog, heart palpitations, shaky hands, insomnia.
I'm currently taking supplements for adrenal support and I believe that has helped some with the fatigue. I'm not gluten free but I'm mostly sugar and dairy free, I do have a dairy sensitivity. Am considering going completely gluten free after all that I've read about Hashimotos.
Thanks in advance for any advice or information!
