Re: Doc says nothing wrong with results but feel ill :(
Hi Cazzy, I have not been here for very long but what I have learned from this board is that first of all, the range for TSH seems to be different in different labs but new thoughts show that anything over 3 can be suspect and most "normal" people hovver around 1, so your level along with your symptoms could be highlighting a problem.
Your Ft4 and FT3 won't tell much unless you post the ranges they come with so if you have them, please post. Not having a high anti body result does not neccessarily mean you do not have a problem.
Bear in mind other things can cause these symptoms as well, adrenal fatigue (cortisol test) low iron and ferritin, low vit D3 and so on, so getting an overall picture for your own benefit would help. Your FT3 is a big indicator of thyroid issues FT4 converts to FT3 making it available to your cells, not having enough can lower metabolism and cause a host of symptoms. It sounds like you could do with a second opinion if your doctor isn't willing to investigate your symptoms and not go by the numbers, using TSH numbers to treat or diagnose thyroid issues is, from everything I have read here, a total injustice to those suffering....I hope you get answers and relief soon...take care!
