Can someone help with my readings please?
March 2018 TSH 4.25 mU/L Free T4 12.6 pmol/L;
April 2019 TSH 6.19 mU/L Free T4 11.3 pmol/L Thyr Perox ABs 10.5 U/mL. At this point a GP put me on thyroid medication.
Aug 2019 TSH 1.13nU/L Free T4 14.8 pmol/L (thyr perox abs not checked). The levothyroxine caused headaches ++ so another GP took me off medication.
Dec 2019 TSH 8.40 mU/L T4 11.9 pmol/L Thyr perox abs 32.4 U/mL
Parathyroid hormone Aug 2019 - 7.7 pmol/L, Dec 2019 - 9.9 pmol/L. Vitamin D less than 20nmol/L
esr steadily rising also but they say rheumatoid factor was negative. It was at 31mm/hr Dec 2019
I've a tiny brain aneurysm. My thyroid ultrasound (March 2019) said - ''normal in size but mildly hypoechoic course parencyma. Correlation with thyroid function tests advised''. This check was done via ent; I had been referred there for tinnitus and neck lumps. Tinnitus and neck lumps still problematic. I was discharged from ent after one visit.
So my gp wrote to endocrinology for 'advice'. The endocrinologist said - not to be on levothyroxine, don't check vit d until a year has passed since last check (Aug 2019), and not to check the parathyroid levels again EVER, as they fluctuate and the readings are of 'no use'.
Should I push for a referral? Although getting a bit fed up with having to fight to get checks done so may have to go private. I'm absolutely exhausted. Once I'm back from work, all I can do is feed the pets, make a quick meal for the family, shower and I'm asleep by 10pm.
Any advice would be helpful as I'm seeing a different gp next week.
