Thyroid test – to see how efficiently my thyroid was working.
I’ll let you know how I got on.
Upon revisiting this topic, I realise I never told you my Thyroid test results – BUT told you the Stomach acid test results twice, blooming short-term memory problems kicking in again, sorry!
Anyway, back to Thyroid well according to my blood test results, my Free T4 was 12.6 (normal ref range 12.0 to 22.0 pmol/l)
. . . which showed that my Free T4 was sitting right at the bottom end of normal range, with a raised TSH of 3.35. I live in the UK but apparently, if I lived in America, I would probably have been started on Thyroid hormones, since their threshold for TSH is only 3.0 – so unfortunately, I’ve been unable to obtain any treatment for this yet.
Wow, I’ve seen ranges change between labs, but never between countries!!! Some doctors here will go ahead and give Synthroid a whirl and see if it helps the patient,thinking that perhaps the ranges are too strict. But be careful – too much supplementation can contribute to osteoporosis. It’s a tight-walk! Say, did you ever figure out what the HECK your mito report meant? Google Scholar to the rescue? 😉
