Having been advised to ask for my test results and build-up my knowledge of TSH,T4,T3,I have now obtained all my results since being diagnosed with Hashimoto's.
Can I advise anyone who hasn't already done this,to go ahead and get these results for yourself.It is very empowering!Plus,it is already helping me to understand this new "thyroid" language,that everyone else seems to talk and I didn't.
When diagnosed with Hashi's;TSH 7.13,T3 4.6,T4 15.
Prescribed 75 Levothyroxine,Sep 2010 TSH 2.76,T3 4.1,T4 15.
Received letter from Hosptal Follow-up Register asking me to be tested.So had new test last week and awaiting results.Will post these when I get them and have already made appointment with GP to review results.See,I am being pro-active!
I now have previous results to compare these new ones and I think,a guide,looking at previous answers,to the the range.But I'm not confident yet to challenge my GP,if he says,I am ok.
I am still not well,so am really hoping new results show why.
Sorry,if this sounds too basic and just commonsense to everyone but this is all new to me.It has really helped talking to everyone ,Thankyou,Paula
