TSH - 2.48 mIU/L (0.5 - 4.70)
fT3 - 6.2 pmol/L (3.5 - 6.5)
fT4 - 20 pmol/L (10 - 23)
TSH - 2.45 mIU/L (0.35 - 5.00)
fT3 - 5.4 pmol/L (2.6 - 5.7)
fT4 - 19 pmol/L(12 - 22)
any help interpreting these would be great. i dont understand why TSH is high when ft3 and ft4 are normal yet i still feel hypothyroid.[/quote]
A very possible cause is you have hashi’s. Have you ever had the antibodies test to confirm if in fact you do have hashi’s.
The tests are Anti TPO and Anti TgA. Probably best to get them checked.[/quote]
no i never tested antibodies. i figured there was no reason because i have none of the signs of hashis or an autoimmune disease. no hairloss, no droopy eyelids, no dry skin, no depression, no swelling of legs or ankles, no constipation, etc.
the only signs of hypo i have really are tired alot, could sleep 12 hours and still not feel refreshed, and gain weight easily and have trouble dropping it. oh and brain fog.
if it makes a difference i took an adrenal support formula in march-april 2012 right before the 2012 blood tests were done. this cleared up alot of symptoms associated with adrenal fatigue.
