Ok, these are my test results. I think they look good as I feel pretty good. The only thing I can't shake is that I can sleep FOREVER. Like 12 hours no problem. Also, do any of you wake up sweating in the middle of the night? I've never had that till now.
These are my results from the beginning:
T4,free 0.1 (0.9-1.7)
TSH 393.4 (.34-2.5)
T4,free 1.7 (0.9-1.7)
T3, total 161 (80-200)
Girl, if you FEEL good you don't need to go any further. That's the ultimate goal (at least in my opinion). If you ever do start to feel bad, or start having strange things happen, then get all of the additional tests and go from there.
I'm very happy to hear that you are feeling a lot better. I'm not sure what those additional tests were on your labs, but your cholesterol is lookin good!
Thanks for the input. I kinda feel like you do when you say if you feel good ... so be it. I'm a little disappointed that the Cholesterol isn't better. I'm a small person and I don't each much greasy foods. Although, the monday I had it checked I ate egg bake all weekend. (New Years weekend I made egg bake and a blueberry bake which has 12 eggs in it. Yummy) It's only me and my husband so it lasted all weekend. I didn't even think about the test.
I'm really curious to know though if anyone has the sweats at night. Even if I sleep naked I wake up sweaty. I've had to keep my window cracked open. (I live in Minnesota so you know how cold it is here.) Also, my periods only last like 2 days. It sounds like menopause but I'm waaaaaay to young for that.
Gosh, both of those sound like symptoms of hyperthyroidism. Maybe you should get your Free T3 tested. Are you taking any other type of med? Sometimes SSRI's will give you night sweats. When I was hyperthyroid I would sweat a lot and I moved a lot while I slept. Shorter than normal menstral cycle is also indicative of hyper. I dunno, maybe you should talk to your doctor and see what he/she thinks? Sorry I dont' have better input.
Yes I am on Zoloft. I was having anxiety/panick attacks out of the blue. They put me on meds. Two weeks into the meds I was still having severe chest discomfort so my mom drug me into the ER. That's where they found the Thryroid problem. If they would have checked that in the first place they wouldn't of had to put me on the Zoloft. Now I have to deal with getting off of that.
Anyway, I've just started the night sweat thing a couple of weeks ago. I've been on the Zoloft longer than the Synthroid. I have an appointment in March to see a gyno. Maybe I'll wait and talk to her about it.
I definately have no problem sleeping. I just wake up in the middle of the night sweating. If I leave the window open I'm usually okay. It's so strange to go from being so cold all the time to being comfortable during the day and now sweating at night. Although, my husband says I put off a lot of body heat. ???
Liver tests? Really? Hmmmm. I'm not even much of a drinker. Both those other two tests were taken when I was fasting. The ALT is 77 with a range from <55 and the AST is 47 with a range from 5-40. Do you think those are high enough to ask about? They have dropped since the first time I was checked. My ALT was 87 and my AST was 49. I wonder if the more I'm on the meds those numbers will get better? ANyone know??
