Latest blood test results

Just picked up my latest results and things seem to be going well. I'm now 7 months after RAI. On 7 Dec:

Tsh was 33.3 and is now 2.47 (range 0.38 to 4.70)

T4 - 17 now 19 (10 to 23)

T3 - 3.5 now 5 (2.80 to 7.10)

Any thoughts? I'm just back at work and although feeling a lot better than I did I'm still very tired. I have an Endo appointment next week and need to be prepared - don't like the guy, so patronising, and trying to change to another one.

Any ideas at which point I get passed back to my GP to deal with?

Hi Even now your FT3 could be higher,I need mine near the top of range. if still not feeling right ,it could be this or low ViD, if d low then you need a calcium test before treatment as D makes Ca higher and it is dangerous out of range.( corrected calcium only)

You may feel better anyway. it does take quite a while for the thyroid to be stable.

I have learnt from bitter experience to never stay with a consultant as you describe. If your GP referred you OK and the endo is not discharging you, I would ask for a new referral but do all your research first, Look up names from hospitals and then CV on the WEB etc.

Best wishes.
