Hi, I recently went to my doctors complaining of feeling over tired for the last few years but in particular the last few months. Depression, was and is something i've suffered for years. Before going to the doctors I started doing my own research on line (putting off going to my new docs) as i've known things just aren't right with my body for some time. All of my symptoms pointed to an underactive thyroid. I'm generally not one for self diagnosing so felt a bit embarrased to say to my doctor my symptoms pointed to an under active thyroid. Anyway she carried out some blood tests and I have the results. The doctor said i was borderline and should have tests once a year. I've read tests arent so accurate, something to do with T3/T4? I just hoped someone might help me understand as i know i dont feel right and the doc said diet would make no difference and theres nothing i can do. Surely not the case😕?
I'll just give test results which are above/below range, (i presume thats all thats needed).
SERUM TSH LEVEL 4.9mlU/L above range
TPO states above range (no result figures given)
MEAN CELL HAEMOGLOBIN LEVEL 32.9pg
NEUTROPHIL COUNT 1.9 10*9/L below range
SERUM TOTAL BILIRUBIN LEVEL 37 umol/L above range
Any advice would be very much appreciated please, I'm sick of feeling like I do.
