My doctor has said I have Hashimoto's. My latest results say I am taking too much thyroxine but I don't feel overtreated and I have not taken any more than 175mcg on any day. My doctor did a shedload of other labs and I had a phone call from my surgery telling me my doctor wants to discuss them. I am now very worried as to which one/s is/are abnormal. I have made a list of tests that I remember were ordered and my thoughts on them but I don't see my doctor for another 3 weeks.
I have been on thyroxine for a year. I take 175mcg thyroxine at present, without fail at the same time every day, and I have been on this since June this year. I also take Vitamin D at 6000 international units and Vitamin B12 at 1000 mg, again at the same time every day for about a week. I've been told my ferritin is normal as is my folate.
Just to add, I did not take my thyroxine before the blood draw and I had the blood draw early in the morning. So is it possible that my results and symptoms indicate a flare and that my results reflect that?
Other tests my doctor has ordered:
FSH - checked lots of times before, always been normal
LH - checked lots of times before, always been normal
Glucose - checked lots of times before but even though I have a family history of diabetes the glucose has always been normal
Calcium - checked lots of times before, always been normal
Amylase - related to the pancreas (?)
There were heaps of others that I can't remember I'm afraid...
TSH: 8.01 (0.2-4.2)
Free T4: 14.6 (12-22)
Free T3: 4.1 (3.9-6.7)
TPOab: 171 (<34)
TGab: 284 (75)
TSH: 0.02 (0.2-4.2)
Free T4: 24.3 (12-22)
Free T3: 6 (3.9-6.7)
I have had the 24 hour cortisol (saliva) test done a year ago but I understand some doctors don't accept these results and I will only post these if need be.
