Question about test

Posted , 6 users are following.

I am in the midst of been diagnosed I have done so many blood tests for extreme fatigue some weight loss (I am underweight) palpitations extreme loss of hair pain in the bones / muscles just to name a few. I asked for thyroid panel test my doctor doesn't seem concerned with results, can you please take a look and see if you recognize numbers like this in hyper?

Tsh 0.95

T3 1

Free t4 2.09

I was hoping for a hyperthyroidism diagnosis because I can't go on like living like this! Doc said out of compassion that if I wanted I could see a endo.

What do you think of the values? I know they are not that out but but I still have symptoms even with these values? Any answer would b appreciate it!!

    Hi lidia1972, most test results include the measuring  units and the normal range.

    For example: Free T4 61 pmol/L [10-20] or TSH 0.03 miu/L [0.2 -6]. 

    Could you add that information? Otherwise it is difficult to comment on your results as different labs may use different units.

    Your TSH is within normal range, T4 elevated but borderline hyper, T3 low suggest hypo. IN general from Dr perspectvie it's normal. Your numbers looks OK.  Butif you suggest otherwise please get reffered to an endo.  Most Dr and endo goes by numbers if within range they wont do anything.  I found this out since my last endo moved to Japan and was left with mediocre dr and goes by numbers and not symptoms.  My TSh got 2.2 and i was gaining weight as ussual then the Dr just tells your level is within range keep your dosage.  Luckily I found my TSH sweet spot.  If I go <1.0 im hyper and >2.0 im hypo and gains weight more than ussual....  You know your body than anyone else so up to you.

    Hi Lidia, I am Italian living in the U.K. thou! Health system indeed better here, although the queue to see an endocrinologist is endless due to so many people having diabetes, so I go privately with my insurance.

    WRT to bloods, do you have the ranges? They are different here in the U.K.
