Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Are you able to write a prescription for me if I provide a copy of the results from my General Practitioners?
I have just had more blood tests done and requested my previous panel from 06/05/15:
Mildly elevated eosinophil and basophil counts
serum free t4: 13.8pmol/l (RANGE 7.9-20.0)
TSH -6.9 pmol/l (RANGE 0.34-5.60 MU/L)
Bilirubin 7 (5-17)
Alk Phos 89 (25-92)
ALT 23 (0-40))
Thyroid peroxidase Ab <1.0 iu/ml (0-8 IU/ML)
So as not Hashimotos say TSH is a blip? How? Thanks
Thank you very much- I have printed your excellent replies and will make a private endocrinologist appointment if GP refuses to treat! Feeling very poorly today.
My doctor says thyroid can not be the problem because TSH is raised in the absence of autoantibody-even though only ONE was tested-I have had elevated anticardiolipin antibodies for years causing miscarriage and a prem. delivery where baby died. Surely I am more likely to develop an autoimmune disease?
he said that raised TSH in absence of raised anti-thyroid autoantibody is not real hypothyroidism.
I contacted my GP Surgery yesterday and they said that the TSH is 1.3 now and normal free t4. No treatment and this has happened in 3 months.
How on earth can it be swinging so violently and do I still need to see an endo do you think? x
On Friday I visited my GP to collect results. They only did TSH and no other thyroid hormones. However GfR is less than normal (previous reading 83ml/min/1.73m squared. Also white count not normal-but don't know which ones were out. If GFR is slipping wouldn't that also suggest hypothyroid picture?
