Ask for a complete copy of the results. Hope they are helpful! Feel free to post results here when you get them.
I was just sent directly from my OBG to get additional labs after she looked at my prelim results and heard my symptoms . The new tests are testosterone ; free and total, estradiol, FSH and LH, CBC with diff and platelets, thyroid peroxidase with antibodies, and thyroid profile .
If that free T4 level is accurate, it is very high. Not sure why it would be so high and your TSH so low unless you are hyperthyroid or have some sort of pituitary problem.
As far as hormone testing, go with blood tests not saliva.
My hips are sore too since my hysterectomy...it messes up your pelvic structure and integrity.
It says t4, free (direct) and had a result of 4.13 and the range was .82-1.77 . I was not tested for hormone levels at the time but I have an appointment t tomorrow for just that. Do you recommend mouth Sean or blood test ?
My other symptoms include always tired, always winded- I use to run half marathons now I can barely get up a flight of stairs without being winded and rapid heart rate! I have extremely sore hips and shooting pains between my shoulders and down my back if I sit more that 30 mins. My nails seem brittle and I don't nbke how to explain it but my mind just seems cloudy , like I can't focus or remember things .
Unfortunately, hysterectomy can really mess with the endocrine system. And there is a 40% chance of ovarian failure due to the loss of blood flow as well as loss of the feedback loop with the uterus. However, women are seldom told these facts. Your TSH result would seem to indicate hyperthyroidism but not sure about the T4. Is that total T4 or free T4 and what is the lab range shown on your results? Did your doctor check your ovarian hormone levels (estrogen, testosterone, progesterone, FSH, LH)?
