    Thyroid Lab Result Confusion

    I'm 20 months PP. I've had severe hair loss, change in skin, trouble sleeping, trouble concentrating, and on occassion my mood gets a bit down, night sweats, cold all the time. I had my doctor check for anemia and thyroid issues. I didn't post all items but below are some I believe are of importance. May I also note that I have a lump on right side under jaw line (not visible to eye) but when I push on it, it moves my left side of neck and vise versa (almost like my hyoid bone? I thought it was swollen hard gland but its connected both sides and protrudes more on right). Anyways please see results below and maybe a second opinion is needed. Or insight if you've been through similar.

    TIBC 391 MCG/DL
    Transferrin 279 MG/DL
    CRP Inf. <0.20 MG/L

    I've and thyroid disease for years and if TSH, T4 and T3 are normal you don't have problems in thyroid function. The high and low results indicate possible liver function problems but I'm not sure what that has to do with your symptoms.

    How does your doctor interpret the high and low findings, and what does he or she have to say about the lump? What does he or she say about your symptoms? These are not things I would simply ignore. And the symptoms you mention are very much like symptoms I experienced as an untreated and then undertreated thyroid patient.

    When it comes to thyroid issues, seemingly normal numbers can be quite misleading. In my case, I was treated with Synthroid for many years, seemingly with good blood test results but with many, many unresolved symptoms, before it became apparent that my body does not convert T4 into T3 (these are the two main thyroid hormones). As a result I now take dessicated thyroid, which contains both hormones. Most of my symptoms are now resolved.
