Hi all, I'm new here but have lurked for a while.
I have recently been investigating my possible thyroid issues, including getting tests, but I'm a bit bewildered and would appreciate your help. 36 white caucasian male, hypothyroid symptoms (fatigue, weight gain, insomnia, constipation, anxiety and depression (mainly at night time), dry skin, poor hearing). They could be from something else - but they could be thyroid related too
DIO1 rs2235544 - homozygote A:A
DIO2 rs225014 - heterozygous T:A
Serum free T3 level - (PHILL) - 4.7pmol/L
Thyroid function test (PHILL) -
Serum TSH level 1.16 mU/L
Serum free T4 level 19pmol/L
I had similar blood results 6 months earlier (I can track them down if it would help).
My NHS GP has been very un-sympathetic to my wife's thyroid issues, so I'm not sure I'll get much from talking to him in any detail, but what should my next steps be? Should I privately obtain a fuller thyroid blood test somewhere, talk to an endocronologist, or nothing?
Thanks for your help and Merry Christmas all!
