Hi, I’ve posted before about issues I’ve had with what appears to be an under active thyroid...so now I’ve got blood results (which might as well be in Spanish!) so I’m hoping that someone here might be able to put them into simple English.
In April last year I had a blood test that showed:
Thyroid peroxidase antibody level - 484.4 u/mL
Erythrocyte Sedimentation rate - 13 mm/h
A blood test in July last year showed:
Saturation iron binding capac - 12%
August blood test showed:
Serum TSH Level - 6.1
Serum free T4 level - 14.5
From September onwards I’ve been on Levothyroxine 25mcg which took a while to have any effect but then only worked for about 4 weeks! I’ve asked for an increase but this has been refused point blank because a repeat TSH test showed I was within normal parameters (although I don’t have the exact results just yet).
A blood test in October showed:
Serum C reactive protein level - 7mg/L
This week I’ve had an ultrasound scan on my neck which has shown my thyroid to be smaller than expected...not large.
Someone somewhere is clearly missing something but I’m not sure what.
If anyone can help with this I will be grateful.
