I am returning to this as my blood tests still show practically the same (every time) T4 reading. I have not had any T4 prescribed for over 2 years and have NO thyroid.
My GP says that other parts of the body also produce T4 - is this true? I have never seen this confirmed. This is the sort of reading I get.
No thyroid all surgically removed 5 years ago.
I take 75 of T3 spread over a day. 37.5; 25; 12.5
Blood test before any meds taken
TSH 0.032 (0.360 - 3.740)
T4 FREE 1.23 (7.60 - 14.60)
T3 FREE 4.08 (2.18 - 3.98)
T4 should surely be zero
I can understand a slight inaccuracy on a reading but in my mind there is a difference between an inaccurate reading and detecting something that is not there. I have just been re-scanned to check to thyroid regrowth.
Again any thoughts appreciated
Happy New Year.
