I recently had a routine blood test for my annual physical come back abnormal. My doctor is concerned about it and has referred me to an endocrinologist. Will see the endo in 2 weeks.
Here are the findings so far:
Free T4 1.29
Free T3 381
Thyroid Scan/ Uptake 3.3% at 6 hours-Radiologist states that this is in the hypothyroid range and the thyroid gland is relatively small.
My symptoms are more hypo such as constipation, fatigue, weakness, i have gained a few pounds and find that i am craving sweets more than usual. Have difficulty losing weight with diet and exercise. I also have a fairly consistent mild headache. I do have allergy sinus problems so don't know how to differentiate between that and possible pituitary tumor, etc.
WHAT MIGHT THE PROBLEM BE? Secondary Hypothyroidism, Pituitary Adenoma, or nothing at all???
