I'm new to this site and looking for some advice after NHS GP surgery not being able to provide further support.
I've experienced the symptoms associated with low thyroid/IBS/low b12 for a good 10+ years now. I've had blood tests done two weeks ago by my GP who said I was fine, didn't want to research further and has prescribed me IBS meds instead. Whilst I'm aware it could be IBS, I would rather know for sure after ruling other out potentials.
My recent blood results:
B12 - 272 pg/mL (197 - 771)
TSH - 1.81 (0.27 - 4.20)
Free T4 - 12.9 (12.0 - 22.0)
Liver function (serum total bilirubin) - 20 umol/L (0 - 20)
Liver function (serum albumin) - 49 g/L (34 - 50)
I've included all past results below, that may be relevant? - any I noticed were either borderline or 'abnormal':
MCH - 32.1 pg (27-32)
liver function (serum albumin) - 44 g/L (33 - 48)
liver function (serum total bilirubin) - 19 umol/L (2 - 21)
liver function (serum albumin) - 49 g/L (32 - 45)
liver function (serum total bilirubin) - 28 umol/L (0 - 21)
TSH - 3.2 mu/L (0.5 - 3.6)
TSH - 3.0 mu/L (0.5 - 3.6)
If anyone can see shine any light on these results I would really appreciate any advice on what my best move is. I'm considering seeing someone privately - although I'm not sure whether I should see a private GP or straight to a private endocrinologist? (Don't have endless money to spend).
