Visited doctor today with my blue horizon results:-
THYROID PROFILE 2
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4) 97 nmol/L 59 - 154
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE 2.59 mIU/L 0.27 - 4.2
FREE THYROXINE 13.7 pmol/l 12.0 - 22.0
FREE T3 4.0 pmol/L 3.1 - 6.8
Thyroglobulin Antibody 18.8 IU/mL 0-115(Negative)
Method used for Anti-Tg: Roche Modular
Thyroid Peroxidase Antibodies 7.7 IU/mL <34 (Negative)
Method used for Anti-TPO: Roche Modular
Gave the massive list of my symptoms, and he said there is NO PROBLEM WHATSOEVER with my thyroid, there may be an issue in later years, but nothing now?????
One of my previos rounds of blood taken last year by my doctor showed smooth muscle antibodies, and I had to have re test for this end of jan. Upon calling receptionist a week later, was informed the results were fine, another mistake, there were still antibodies and I should have been retested again a few weeks ago.
Is there no end to the stupidity?
Doctor said my symptoms were more likely M.E and ignored thyroid concerns, he said it was some form of post viral fatigue to which i asked if this would last several years and he said yes. He had feeling ME answered all of my symptoms. I reminded him of skin, hair and nails, swollen tongue, constipation etc and he said yes it can cause these too.
Here are the further bloods he has ordered, which I will go to the local hospital to be drawn at 8.00 am tomorrow (my choice of time re thyroid result mainly)
complement c3 and c4
C Reactive protein
IMMUNOGLOBULIN AND SERUM
Immunology carrier test
Liver function test
Thyroid function test TSH
UREA AND ELECTROLYTES
VITAMIN d (I remembered to ask about my vitamin d test taken last november, i said there is a link with low vit D and thyroid and thus wanted to know my result, he looked this up and said yes it was low but didnt necessarily mean that it was thyroid, could just be the time of year)
Is there any point to all of this grrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr!
