One year after my hemithyroidectomy (due to 1" benign cyst) my endocrinologist has discharged me because my bloods are 'normal' and my symptoms since the op are apparently 'just coincidence' and she referred me for an ECG as it 'might all be caused by an underlying heart problem'. My ECG showed no abnormalities. At my ECG the nurse was brilliant and and admitted that it was a great coincidence that my symptoms started a few weeks after my op...the usual terrible mind fog, wanting to sleep all the time, dry skin, headaches, no zeal for life etc. and sent off for the bloods below. Would anyone be kind enough to look at my results and offer any suggestions for improving my quality of life. (I have been taking B-Complex and D3 which have helped to an extent.) I take 25/50mg levothyroxine alternately.
Vit D 101 nmol/L
Ferritin 38.2 (110 - 307 ug/L)
B12 273 ng/L (145 - 914 ng/L)
folate 9.02 ug/L (3 - 20 ug/L)
TSH 2.7 mlU/L (0.3 - 4.8 mlU/L)
free T4 13.9 (7.7 - 20.60 pmol/L)
free T3 5.2 (4.2 - 6.9 pmol/L)
serum sodium 141 mmol/L (133 - 146)
serum creatinine 48 umol/L (45 - 84)
Serum C <5 (<10 mg/L)
magnesium 0.96 mmol/L (0.7 - 1.0)
calcium 2.48 mmol/L
glucose 5.2 mmol/L (3.5 - 5.4)
Also have Liver function, Full Blood Count and bone profile but not wanting to bore you!
As a bit of background, looking back to 25 years ago after having children, I had similar symptoms for about 8 years, but thought I was depressed, so I'm thinking that there has been something underlying for a long time.
I really appreciate any help you might be able to offer. Thank you.
