Hello, My Rheumatologist recently did a limited thyroid panel on me and Im not sure exactly what if anything these test mean.
She didn’t do the TSH but she did T4, FT4 and T3 Uptake which I never had done (I suspect this is not a helpful test)
T4 - 8.1 (4.5 - 12 )
Ft4- 2.2 ( 1.2 - 4.9 )
T3 Uptake- 27% (24% - 39%)
NO TSH or T3 (I just did another thyroid test with my Endo but no results yet).
Im currently taking 100mcg of T4 a day PLUS an extra 50mcg once per week along with 10 mcg of T3 daily. I did fast prior to test and did not take my meds until after the test.
Current issues: thyroid-less (cancer) psoriatic arthritis (treating with biological injections monthly) Anemia, extremely high cholesterol, low MCHC values, High Alkaline Phosphate values (don’t know if these matter) chronic fatigue, lack of appetite but extreme weight gain since thyroidectomy in 2016.
