Lab Results

A friend of my parents is what I would classify as a thyroid "expert" with all the knowledge she has and she has been telling me for a year or more that she believes I have Hashimoto's. I'm going to a new doctor, but can't get in until June.

He is going to run more tests, but these are my labs from November:

TSH - 2.33 (Range - 0.27-5.50)

Free T4 - 1.13 (Range - 0.93-1.70)

T3 Total - 1.53 (Range - 0-2)

Thyroglobulin Ab - <20 (Range - <20)

Thyroid Perox Ab - 21 (Range - <35)

TSI - <89 (No range, just says baseline is <140%)

My symptoms are fatigue, trouble sleeping, dead tired in the morning, headaches, neck pain, foggy head feeling, dry eyes, anxiety, stress, high blood pressure, muscle pain.

What do you think?

Re: Lab Results

Your TSH above 2 and low FT4 along with your symptoms would certainly suggest that you're hypothyroid. If everything was fine your TSH would probably around 1-1.5 and FT4 around midrange or higher. Next time ask to have FREE T3 tested that would give you a more accurate results (but usually TSH and FT4 are enough to get a hypoT diagnosis).
