As suggested by KSman I had some more bloodwork done on Dec 8.
TSH 2.39 (0.40-4.50)
Free T4 1.2 (0.8-1.8)
Free T3 2.0 (2.3-4.2)
Total T3 51 (76-181)
Rev T3 35 (11-32)
WBC 4.9 (3.8-10.8)
RBC 3.67 (4.20-5.80)
Hemoglobin 12.3 (13.2-17.1)
Hematocrit 36.2 (38.5-50.0)
MCV 98.8 (80-100)
MCH 33.6 (27-33)
MCHC 34 (32-36)
RDW 13.5 (11-15)
Platelet Count 200 (140-400)
Ferritin 240 (20-345)
Serum Folate >24 (Normal: >5.4)
Total Test 261 (241-827)
Estradiol 19 (13-54)
Total Protein 7.3 (6.2-8.3)
Albumin 4.8 (3.5-4.7)
So....thyroid numbers are way off. Is iodine supplementation the answer? Looks like the primary problem is conversion of T4 -> T3. Perhaps selenium supplementation? Should I go on thyroid medication?
Also RBC, hemoglobin, and hematocrit are still out of range. Ferritin came back "normal". Any suggestions here. Continue eating red meat, or something else?
Should I be alarmed by the very high folate reading or the high albumin?
Testosterone still low as well. Would have liked another free test reading, but didnt get one. Estradiol came back at 19 - close to what Ive read is optimal at 22.
I have held off on using the Androgel prescribed by my endo. My primary doc wants me to wait another four weeks and have bloodwork done again. He says thyroid meds may cause more problems than good and is encouraged by the increase in testosterone - even if it is slight.
Urine testing revealed no trace of blood this time, and more concentrated urine - so thats improvement/encouraging.
I'm not in favor of playing the waiting-game another four weeks with low energy, no libido, depression.
Thanks again to anyone willing to spend time to help my situation.
