Test Results In_I'm A Little Scared_High Thyroglobulin_Help!
Hi Everyone -- Here are my latest test results, taken over the past 3 weeks. As a reminder, my symptoms are fatigue, foggy brain, groggy, slight feeling of fullness in throat, morning temps are low. More tired in morning. More energy in eve. Much less capacity for exercise (I can do very little now).
You'll notice that my thyroglobulin level is high (never had thyroid problems prior to this year, to my knowledge....). I'm a bit worried about what that could mean. Trying to figure all of this out. Kind of hard since I don't get much help from my doc (I have Kaiser and limited funds). I got my doc to refer me to an Endo, and I have an appointment to see the Endo next Friday.
I'm currently taking low-dose of Armour, about 20 mg. I had been taking Levothroid a couple of months ago, and it did start to make me feel better, but I COULD NOT handle that drug. Gave me heart palps at very low dose. With Armour, my T3 has risen, but T4 hasn't budged. TSH number went down a bit. This is all very confusing to me. Any input would be appreiciated. Here are my latest results. You can see my prior results and read more about my issue in some of my other posts, if needed/interested.
Thank you so very much! :-)

Reason: Edited Thyroglubulin Test Result. Wrote "Thyroglubulin AB" for both tests, when one should have been just "Thyroglubulin".
