I am still among the ignorant when it comes to numbers' analysis, but I am trying to read up and learn more. I've been having problems with depression, fatigue, anxiety, and insomnia. I take Synthroid 112mcg but feel that I may need either an increase or the addition of another medication. I'm on antidepressant and antianxiety meds, but these only work on the symptoms (while the hypothyroidism may be the *cause*). My endo wants to wait for the results of my FNB before adjusting my meds, but in the meantime, I was hoping that some of you experts could help me make heads or tails of these numbers.
The left-hand side of my copy of the blood test results is cut off, so I'm going to do my best in deciphering which tests were performed.
T3 Uptake: 26.7 (range: 25.0-39.3)
T4: 13.7 (range: 4.5-12.0) Note: I believe my number is high due to estrogen therapy (in the form of birth control pills) for polycystic ovaries.
T7: 3.7 (range: 1.0-4.5)
TSH: 2.18 (range: 0.40-4.0)
Thyroxine Free: 1.5 (range: 0.8-1.90)
Is anyone able to help with these numbers?
Thanks very much in advance.
