To start my primary care manager started me with a blood test that came back abnormal with: Neutrophils 66.7, Creatinine 0.62, Glucose Random 115, LDL 108,TSH 0.45 Free T4, SH 0.45. From there on more tests followed as i am overweight always tired and feeling really crappy and in my family there is a history of Hypothyroidism (sorry for the spelling).
Another testing ( MRI and nuclear testing) showed a 1.2 complex cyst within left lobe of the thyroid gland, which my endocrinology Doc( measurements are 1.2x0.5.x1.1 cm) first told me to biopsy it and now changed her mind and said to wait and see, which i am not to fond of is that normal? that is not my only concern!
My other blood results came back with:
TSH 0.44
Free T4 1.06
T3 118
All those tests confuse me and i have a no where else to turn since my insurance doesn't cover a thyroid specialist and the endo Doc doesn't really care, what do i do am i just over reacting or should i proceed? PLEASE Advice!
