Hi!

Can anyone advise about latest results from Medichecks. Now with raised T3. White Blood cell decreased - Neutrophils. My research suggests connection with overactive thyroid/medication. Currently on 1.25mgs Carbimazole. Main symptom - shivers/feeling cold - which is a symptom suggested for Neutrophils problems.

Medichecks advice - re-test in a month.

Antibody results continue negative.

TSH 0.009 (0.27-4.20; T4 17.700 (12.00-22.00); T3 7.71 (3.10-6.80).

Thanks. X

Which antibodies did you test?

They all have been tested - again during 2018 - and always negative. No - to Graves and Hashi’s. Although I know that may not be the definitive answer!

Yep! When first diagnosed in 2012 tests for Graves came back negative. It was only after joining this forum found out about other testing. Tests are negative.

The diagnosis - englarged multi-noduled goitre with isolated T3 toxicosis. This is the first test ever - when only the T3 has been over!!! TSH always ‘suppressed’. Dr P said when I saw him some time ago - just exhausted adrenals.

Recent scan/biopsy of goitre shows all ok. It is only a slighty raised area - you would have to know - to be aware!

I have asked for input from Elaine Graves as she is usually very helpful.

My worst symptoms are temperature intolerance! And being anxious. And hair loss too recently. Hence thinking might be adrenals.....

Oh what fun - a wonky thyroid is...!

I've never heard of anything like that before. No wonder the doctors are stumped! Not quite sure how the adrenals fit in, though.

Only that when the body is stressed - the adrenals suffer which puts pressure on the whole endocrine system!? That was Dr P’s take!

How many times have I asked my body...please explain so I can help.....;-)

Yes, but a stressed endo system shouldn't be making high T3. One would expect the T3 to be low under those circumstances. Well, I would, anyway. :)
