Hi, I’ve had a private blood test done, just got the results today. Extensive googling tells me that if T4 is high, then usually the TSH and / or T3 levels would be off as well but they’re fine. I can call my GP but she’s quite general and I expect she’ll say ‘your TSH levels are fine so there’s no issue’. And maybe she’s right, but I’d like to better understand my results.
Free thyroxine (T4?) 27 pmol/ L (12-22)
TSH 1.69 mIU/L (0.27-4.2)
Free T3 4.58 pmol/L (3.1-6.8)
Symptoms (some come and go)
Rapid heartbeat, thirsty, lack of appetite, hair loss, weak shaky legs.
Symptoms mainly appear just before and during period and I’m 48 so they could be caused by perimenopause but they’re quite extreme.
