Any advice on my results?

Iron 11umol/l (8.8-27)

Iron saturation 19.6% (20-50)

Folate >58nmol/l (8.07-45.30)

VitB12 415pmol/l (133-675)

VitD 23ng/ml (<10ng/mL=deficiency; 10-30= insuficiency; 30-100=normal)

Thyroglobulin Antibodies 188Ul/ml (0.0-40)

Thyroid Peroxidase Antibody (anti TPO) >1000Ul/ml (0-34)

TSH 0.097ulU/ml

FT4 6.54pmol/l (7.86-14.41)

FT3 3.83pmol/l (3.8-6.0)

Red blood cell count 5.25 X10E12/l (3.8-4.8)

Any ideas?

If my TSH is low shouldn;t my FT3 and 4 be high?

Can anything be done about my high antibodies?

I can't help also wondering about the high RBC count. You might get something from having a read here:

Looks like your pituitary is not pushing out as much TSH as is "should".

Can't remember if you are taking any thyroid hormones?



Yes I'm taking 100 thyroxine and 20mcg T3


Hi, sorry I don't really know, but yes TSH is low as well as FT4 and FT3

(there was a chart on the Main TUK site - can't find it 'tho!)

Looking back I think you are supplementing vitamins/minerals, it is suggested that Vit D optimal level is 50ng/ml (125 nmol/L)

I don't know the significance of high folate but low iron?

Some folks find cutting out gluten may help reduce Thyroid antibodies too?

Jane :D


chart here (I think secondary is pituitary?) - we can't say - but worth asking your GP/Endo about...


Trouble is, that chart only gives what standard sets of results mean.

Have a look here:


How long before the blood test did you take your last doses of T3 and T4 and how are you feeling? xx


I started taking 17mg iron, 200 selenium daily since November and using progesterone cream days 14 to end of cycle and feeling better since. I'm not feeling too bad really...just wondering about my high antibodies.....should they be sooooo high?
