Re: Please help my Mum!! Help Needed with these test results.
Thanks for your replies guys. You've been fantastic.
I don't know what else our GP is waiting for, she has lived with these symptoms for far too long-years in fact. We're now going to demand that our doctor does something, or at the very least gives us a referal to an endocrinologist.
I'm not sure about the ranges for FT4 and FT3 FinnMaid. Sorry!
My Mum has had fatigue, insomnia (she has slept two-three hours a night for the last twelve months), cold intolerance, very thin brittle fingernails, hair that is always falling out, very dry skin that gets puffy, a feeling of "raciness" (like her whole body feels out of sorts), very puffy feet, abnormal menstruation and she's also starting to get arthrtis in her fingers (I don't know if that is related or not). Lately she has been having a few anxiety attacks too which is not normal for her at all.
She desperately wants her symptoms to be under control-even if she could just get some more sleep and feel less tired things would improve heaps.
If anyone else has anymore insight I would love to hear from you. Thank you so much!!
