  • Looks to me that the tests seem to be in normal range. Did you discuss these results with your physician?

  • What are your symptoms?There are more thyroid tests that can be done- thyroid antibodies. Typically, these are not checked unless the tests you listed come back abnormal. But I walked around with thyroid symptoms for a long time and normal hormone levels- only to find out later that i did indeed have an autoimmune thyroiditis- picked up by a neurologist because I had a rare encephalopathy that can come with thyroid disease. Another thing that you can have done is a thyroid ultrasound. Mine revealed a normal size gland, but one that was chock full of little nodules, indicating that my gland was under autoimmune attack.Hope this helps

  • Suggest you definitely have thyroid hormone urine test as this apparently gives an even better picture. I am in Britain and have seen Dr Barry Peatfield who is an expert, though he has met with some controversy. Anyway, you could give him a ring.....441474815793 or email drbarrypeatfield@aol.com. Good luck
