Please can anyone tell me what my latest blood test results mean? I am 68 yrs old and was diagnosed with Hyperthyroidism (Grave')s just over a year ago. I am taking 20mg of Carbimazole per day.
TSH 0.61 mU/L 0.35 -3.50
FT4 12 pmoI/L 8 - 21
FT3 4.8 pmoI/L 3.8 - 6.0
How likely is it that I can avoid having Radioactive Iodine treatment? Most of the reports I read about RAI, the people seem to have most of the same symptoms as before, plus new ones & feel a lot worse. I wonder why I would want to subject myself to this treatment.
When were these tests done ? I have read through your previous posts where people have suggested that your anti-bodies must be tested to confirm Graves. Could it be you have Hashimotos ? - again without the anti-bodies being tested it is not possible to know.
Thank you. I am seeing an endo privately this week so hopefully will learn more.
Without test results for anti-bodies I am not sure you can learn more. Hope all goes well with your appointment ... 😴
