I am hypothyroid and have been under the care of Dr P since September , am currently on NAX and NT but due to little improvement have added t3 in early december based on DrP's advice. I had started to feel somewhat better, with less sciatic pain reduced edema in my left calf and less brain fog, however the palps and shaking are about the same if not worse. i had to go to Canada for a wedding and I have to be honest some of my regime went out the window. Surprise surprise - I get back home last week and feel awful. I seem to have picked up a throat virus somewhere and have a cold !
I decided to see the gp as before i left for canada she had agreed to refer me to a second endo for a "second opinion" - anyway it would seem that 21 days later the referral hadn't even left the surgery.
I saw a different gp on my return, and it was like a breath of fresh air! She has been very helpful and ran some blood tests which have confused me .
I am seeing the endo on Tuesday ( private ) but wondered if you guys could advise on he below
Tsh 0.01 (0.3 - 3.18)
Free t3 : 5.9 ( 4.1 - 6.6)
Free t4 : 10.6 (13.1 - 21.3)
C- reactive protein : 5 (0-10)
Calcium 2.25 (2.15-2.60)
Phosphate : 1.11 ( 0.90 - 1.50)
Albumin: 45 ( 34-48)
Alkaline phosphatase : 74 (35-129)
Sodium : 143 (135-147)
Potassium : 4.2 ( 3.5-5.5)
Urea : 5.6 ( 2.1-7.1)
Creatinine : 73 (62-106)
I have the blood counts as well , but suffice to say they were pretty much mid range apart from the white blood cell count which was 11.3 against a range of 3.7-11.1 . Gp says this is likely to be due to throat infection.
Any advice welcome - previous tsh readings had always been around 1.3 - 1.8
