So, I requested that they test me for thyroid antibodies. I just checked my labs and of course they wer not normal.


thyroglobulin ab was 116.9 ref range <60 for both
thyroperoxidase >1300

They labs resulte don June 4th and no one has called me yet to tell me they were off. My TSH was low too, at .11 and no one called for that either.

I am going to call my PCM tomorrow and request a call back. They need to test my T3 and free T3 too, they only did TSH, t4 and free t4. I think I have a problem converting T4 to T3 though and that is why I only feel good if my TSH is super low.

thyroxine: 9.8 (.6- 12) mcg/dl
thyroxine free: 1.5 (rr- .93-1.7) ng/dl
TSH: .11 ref range (.27- 4.2) mcIU/mL


So I want them to test me for anti phospholipid. That could be what killed Colm with the antibodies being high.

I hope they run the test to find out. They do need to adjust your meds and even add in some T3 supplementation.

I have asked three docs so far to supplement T3, the endo said, 'no because it was for thyroid cancer only'. The PCM said no because she didn't know what to do with it and wanted to leave that up tp the endo, the other one wasn't comfortabe with that @@

Bloody doctors...they make me so mad sometimes. You just about have to get your own medical degree and treat yourself. I had 3 different docs look at my labs and never notice a thing was off with my thyroid. It was only when I switched clinics and requested my file and read it myself that I found it. My TSH was 13 and had been for some time, and nobody told me....

I hope you get the answers you're looking for!
