Hi everyone! After at least 4 years of problems have Hyperthyroidism. I'm on methimazole 20 mg a day two in morning two at night.
Here's my test results
thyroid stim hormone 0.003 uIU/m1 normal 0.300-5.000
free thyroxine {T4} 3.1 ng/dL normal 0.7-1.9
free Triiodothyronin 9.4 pg/mL normal 2.8-5.3
I know L and H mean low and high. I don't go back to the doctors for three months. So I have no other info on how bad the results are compared to the normal range. I've had the scan that's what this is from and I have to go have a blood test this week to see if it's getting any better. My doctor for this disease so far is good. It's a month the 13. Next Edema The reason I went is because my feet in legs started to swell bad enough that anymore on the right foot in the skin would have broke open. Than the hair on my leggs stopped growing in my reg doctor ran the test again Bingo you have Graves disease. How exicting! Joke gotta make myself laugh. Okey but now I'm worried the swellings back again in it's also in the hands with the tingling.. I've read up on it so I know the bad about it but need import what anyone else thinks. Thank you in advance
