Hi everybody,I am new in here and a bit confused if anybody can help.I recently had blood tests done due to having symptoms such as brain fog,tiredness,loss of concentration,feeling depressed basically just feeling not myself.My blood test results are
t3 3.58 2-4.4
t4 0.6 0.48-1.9
ferritin 42 15-150
folic acid 10.9 3.89-20
my dr claims it is just anxiety causing my symptoms and there is nothing wrong with my blood test results.Advice appreciated.Thanks
You are hypo, but NHS will not treat until TSH reaches 10. They would rather you suffered and were unable to work. Get TPO and TG antibodies tested as well, as if thoise are high and TSH is high, you might get a prescription,
Thank you very much,I will go privately on tuesday to have those done hopefully.It came to a point I feel like not functioning anymore eventhough my ths is not that high.I will be going to private endo on saturday.Is there anything I should be aware of when I see this doc ie brand of medicines if she prescribes me anything.Thanks so much
just remember that most healthy people have a TSH of around 1.2 and very few have a TSH over 2.5, so your TSH is high and your free T4 is near the bottom of the range. Don't forget to get bloods done as early in the morning as possible, fasting, for best results and don't take any B vitamins containing biotin for 4 days before a blood test.
I already started on b12 but not biotin,would taking b12 change my blood results on tuesday?
