Ok, I've got the most recent numbers and they are also retesting AGAIN on Wed. 11-11 before my next appt on 11-16 (last appt on 11-2) because they said the #'s didn't make sense. They didn't test my antibodies this last time (blood test done on 10-30) but are testing them on the 11th, along with FT3,4&TSH. Genetic testing was done in June 09 during which I tested positive for TC gene, whatever that means I don't exactly know. I'm thinking it just means that I am predispositioned for TC but doc didn't say which type. My Mom & Grama (Mom's Mom) both had/have Hashi's (Gma-hyper/Mom-hypo) w/follicular TC both had/have had recurrences, eerily approximately the same # of years apart after both being the almost the SAME AGE when orig diagnosed w/TC! Both were 35/36 (I'm 35/36 in Jan)) when orig diagnosed.
The old levels are listed above but here are the newest levels:
TSH, 3RD GENERATION: 1.16
FT4: 1.0 (lower than orig)
FT3: 299 (lower than orig)
All ranges are the same as before although symptoms are same and getting worse.
I just hope this all gets figured out some time in the near future 'cause I'm OVER it!
Thanks for your help! Your words have made sense so far.
What type of thyroid cancer did your mother and grandmother have?
They ran a thyroglobulin AB but was a thyroglobulin (Tg) test run?
If you can provide just a little more info I can help you a bit more.
Also - *stop working out* until you see an endo. Your TSH is dangerously low and your BP and heart rate are probably pretty high. Your are close to "thyroid storm" which is what is making breathing difficult and causing stress on your heart. Your endo will probably have to put you on beta blockers for a while to bring your BP and heart rate down until your TSH can be controlled.
If I can get the info about the Tg test and the family cancers I can probably help a bit more,
papillary carcinoma '03, second surgery '04, recurrence and RAI '06
three sisters with papillary carcinoma (one with three recurrences/RAI)
another sister and daughter with precancerous thyroids
Trying to provide a bit of info for you, and by doing so will also bump this post up so that it will get more attention from members with more experience in other areas, including tumors. From your antibodies testing it's likely that you have Hashi's. With this disease, your own autoimmune system puts out antibodies that attack your thyroid glands until, over some time, the glands are destroyed. While this battle rages, the output of your thyroid glands can vary widely, even in a short period of time. Since the lab data you provided came from testing some time ago, perhaps we should hold off any discussion until you get new test results. If you will post the new test results and their reference ranges as shown on the lab sheet, then members will be happy to help interpret.
