I an about to see my GP and wanted some input.
My mother has Hashimoto's Disease. When I complained to her of some symptoms (freezing hands and feet; always cold; losing hair; brittle nails; tired; joint pain; hypoglycemic episodes, and more), she said it reminded her of hypothyroid symptoms.
My Dr agreed to do basic bloodwork (all fine except low Vit D) and also thyroid panel.
TSH: 1.010 (.400-4.500 MIU/L)
Free T4: 0.9 (0.7-2.0 NG/DL)
Free T3: 2.0 (2.6-4.4 PG/ML)
The low Free T3 jumped out at me because it's out of range. But my dr then said that because my TSH is normal, I don't have a thyroid problem.
I am going to ask my new dr to run the same tests. Any thoughts?
Thanks in advance.
