Writing this for a friend who is back in bed
Friend has been ill for many years, 17 years ago she was started on thyroxine then taken off it after 18 months, she felt great on the thyroxine but has slowly got worse since they stopped the thyroxine. She is constantly at the GP's who will only do a TSH & she has always been told it is borderline so no action. When she was on thyroxine 17 years ago she was also diagnosed with high blood pressure & was prescribed Lisinopril and Angitil which she has been taking for 17 years yet her BP is still very high & last week GP gave her a prescription for Bisoprolol to take alongside the Lisinopril and Angitil.
With my nagging she was able to convince the GP to do further blood tests, once again he only did the TSH & not the full thyroid panel we requested. Here are the results of the tests she has just had & any help is greatly appreciated.
TSH 0.57 normal range (0.4 - 4.00)
Vit D18.5 normal range (50 – 250)
Albumin50.2 normal range (35-50)
Ferritin: 231 normal range (13 – 150)
