I wrote a few days ago that I was going to go back to my Dr armed with thyroid info. As usual, she told me that my TSH was in range last time, and I will have another blood test next week.She said she wasn't allowed to do a full T3/T4 test, just the TSH - the standard response..
Knowing that this will come back within range, I asked if it did would she refer me to an endo, and she said yes, so that's positive.
She did try to fob me off with stuff about CFS symptoms being the same etc etc but I told her i was convinced it was my thyroid now. She even said I may be taking too much levothyroxine?
So news as expected, but at least she will refer me.
I got a print out of my TSH over the years and they are as follows:
2003 - 0.7
( gap as I moved house....)
I have read that a range between 0.3 and 0.5 has been proven as a better count to go for- does anyone have any ideas about this?
