On my last test results 3 weeks ago 25/2 my tsh and t4 were 'normal' we all know what that means! To repeat they were:
Tsh 3.84 mu/L range 0.35-5.50
Free T4 13.6pmol/L range 10.3-22.7
B12 324ng/L range 211-911
Glucose 4.5mmol/L range 3.3-5.5
Cholesterol 3.9mmol/L range 1.3-5.2
serum iron is 29 umol/l which is near top of range 7-32
Folate(folic acid) is 5.60 ug/L range 2-11.5
Corrected clacium 1st test 2.12mmol/L repeat test 2.23mmol/L range 2-2.6
I have been diagnosed hypothyroid for 21 years. Current dose has been 125mcg thyroxine for last 6 years. Feeling progressively more awful over last 6 months (won't list all symptoms as long enough q already) and had to change to this gp to get some answers. So I asked him last week to test Vit d ft3 and antibodies. So i went for bloods on Monday and have an appointment tomorrow but when i rang doctors only the Vitamin D result had come back because the lab will not do repeat blood tests for thyroid function less than 4 weeks apart even tho t3 and tpo not tested previously.
Exerpt from hosp lab on blood tests:
Some tests cannot be ordered too frequently eg daily LFTs (with a few specific exceptions) and these will be automatically blocked by the computer system. Repeat testing intervals for common tests are as follows:
Thyroid Function four weeks
So my Vit D result is 60 nmol/l (75-200)
I sent a letter and Dr Toft pulse article to my gp on Monday but I was expecting him to have my ft3 and antibodies test too
So now should I ask for the tests to be repeated next week which is now 4 weeks before action or should I ask for an increase in Thyroxine and a test to see my Ft3 and tpo with tsh t4 in another 4 weeks when dose has had an effect. I don't want to be undecisive at my appointment tomorrow.
