My blood test in September showed antibodies of 1539, but as my TSH was 3.50 I was told no medication was needed. My symptoms have continued to worsen so I went back to my docs where I broke down in tears only for him to tell me all of my symptoms were down to low mood He didn't let the fact that my other symptoms came way before the mood swings/depression get in the way of a good story! He grudgingly agreed to test me again but at our practice it's done by a nurse so I ensured I was getting T3, T4 & antibodies as well as TSH. However, got the results on a print out today and T3 has not been done, despite my request. My TSH is now 4.76 which they describe as borderline despite the range being 0.4-4, my free T4 ,which was not done last time, is 15.1 (not really sure what this means?) and interestingly my antibodies have come down to 1384. I've gone gluten free so am really hoping this has made a difference to my antibodies but am fed up that with all this going on they have just made a note that I should be monitored and the tests repeated in 6 months. Can anyone give me an opinion on my results please and hopefully some advice as to what I can do now? Thanks so much
