I am a 37 year old male who is hoping you would be able to shed some light on some results I recently obtained from a Complete Thyroid Test (results below). The test was a non-fasting test taken at 12 noon.
The reason I have had the test done is because for years I have been suffering with the following symptoms and I won’t just accept that there’s no good reason. I have tried many elimination diets to see if I can find a food group culprit to no avail:
Wildly fluctuating energy levels (to the point that I don’t know how I will feel from one day to the next)
Pins and needles
Bags under my eyes
Various aches and pains
I have some low results and some normal results, although most of the normal results are very borderline low. My TSH for example is right on the cusp of the low yellow marker, my FT3 is in the yellow, my FT4 is low normal and my T4 is low red.
T448(51 - 161)
TSH0.76(0.40 - 4.000
FT414.2(11.5 - 22.7)
FT33.1(2.8 - 6.5)
rT30.24(0.14 - 0.54)
Would borderline low TSH, low FT3, low T4 and low normal FT4 suggest that I might benefit from Levothyroxine and does it also suggest that I might have Central Hypothyroidism? I’ve ready online that low TSH, FT4 and FT3 could mean that? Trying to work out why my levels aren’t firmly in the optimum range?
I’m hoping you might be able to shed some light? I’m waiting on some results of a private hormone panel (Dutch urine) test too to see what that says too.
