Thank you for your response. His TSH level is 1.8 which was taken in early Sept. Incidentally, he is 50 years old.
Looking forward to your reply
Dear Sir, I got your questions.
My son-in-law must phone his doctor tomorrow for T3 & T4 levels, cortisol levels tests and vitamin deficiency tests. He has been on Thyroxine for about 3 years and he was not anemic in a test carried out 3 years ago.
Sorry for the delay. His T4 is 16 but has not been tested for T3. His cortisol levels have not been checked. He was tested for vitamin deficiencies 3 or 4 years ago when he had pneumonia but he cant remember the results but was not advised to take vitamin supplements.
Thank you. I understand his doctor is going to check his T3 and cortisol levels at the end of this month after his present level of thyroxine, which he started about a week ago, has taken effect. Does it seem a prudent action to wait for so long to take these tests?
Thank you for your advice and we will await the outcome of tests at the end of November
