Hi,

My thyroid results came back as:

FT3: 3.93
FT4: 12
TSH: 1.04

I am symptomatic with this - i have trouble losing weight, i have hair loss etc.

My dr says that these results are fine however i dont really know what to think.

Hi Louise! :)
If you have the ranges for your FT3 and FT4 tests, it'd be easier to see where you are.  Both values should be at the upper end of the range.  Have you been tested for antibodies yet?  If not, then talk to your dr about it.  It's not uncommon to have "normal" tests and to have antibodies.

Please keep us posted. :)

Hi the ranges are as follows:

FT3  (2.5 - 6.0)
FT4  (8-22)

Trying to get a referral to see a specialist was hard enough - my GP didn't think there was anything wrong with the results.   I might ask my specialist about antibody results or go see another GP

Thanks

Louise

I find it helps to write down all my symptoms to get doctors to listen. I finally got my doctor to test my adrenal functioning. I told him if it's not my thyroid, isn't it something because I am not making all this up!

The symptoms you are having are not necessarily thyroid related - symptoms of thyroid problems are the same as many other symptoms for many many other disorders or deficencies.  

With these lab results your doctors should be considering other tests to look alternative causes for your symptoms.  These lab numbers do seem very good and would not indicate a thyroid problem.

Best wishes on your journey.
