I have practically every symptom of Hypothyroidism and a strong family history (both Sisters, Mother and Grandmother diagnosed. My PCP ordered lab results and they came back as follows:
TSH 0.67 Range 0.40-4.50 *Normal*
T4 7.8 Range 4.5-12.0 *Normal*
T3 86 Range 76-181 *Normal*
Thyroglobulin Antibodies <20 *Normal* Thyroglobulin 143.0 Range 2.0-35.0 *High*
The girl at the office called and said "my levels were a little high" and therefore My Dr was sending me for a thyroid ultrasound. She wrote Hyper
thyroidism for the diagnoses on the order which was weird because my symptoms seem primarily Hypo. Not really sure what to make of this. How can almost everything show as normal when I feel so crappy. I'm happy that she's sending me for an ultrasound but based on what I've read online, that diagnosis seems kind of like a reach based on only the elevated Thyroglobulin level.
Also, I actually asked her to add the Thyroglobulin and Thyroglobulin Antibodies test to my lab orders because one of my sisters has Hashimotos. She didn't seem all that familiar with them so I'm wondering if she's not familiar with interpreting it.
Any insight would be greatly appreciated
