Are you aware that recurrent infections are a possible symptom of still being hypothyroid? Note this section on infections, taken from a very long list of potential hypo symptoms.
Low immune system
Susceptibility to bronchitis
Hard time recovering from infections
Recurrent sinus infections
Recurrent skin infections
Recurrent ear infections
Recurrent nose infections
Recurrent throat infections
Pelvic Inflammatory Disease (PID)
Repeated urinary tract infections
Upper respiratory tract infections
So, if you will please post your thyroid related test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report, we will be better able to assess your status. Also please tell us about any other symptoms you have.
Could you possibly call the doctor's office and get the test results and reference ranges shown on the lab report and post them here. I really want to try and help figure out what is going on and don't want you to have to wait until the end of the month when you go back to the doctor. If you can get the results, we can get you prepared to have the right kind of discussion with the doctor and get you started on the road to recovery.
Check your vitamin D and vitamin B12 levels as well.
My last lab results don't show reference ranges for some reason. I will call docs office tomorrow but I looked on my patient portal and it doesn't show much but...as of 7/19...
T4 free: 1.0
T3 free: 3.4
I'm not sure what the reference ranges are currently though. I have noticed that my numbers have continuously risen through my last 3 labs.
I will call docs office tomorrow to see if I can get more detailed results. I don't currently have reference ranges but as of 07/19...
T4 free: 1.0
T3 free: 3.4
Not sure if it means anything but I have noticed my numbers have risen steadily during my last 3 labs. I don't think I've ever had ferritin tested but my last doctor used to check my vitamins D and bs. I take vitamin d3 to supplement and I take b12 occasionally when I remember. My last doc gave me b12 shots once a month but she up and left and I had to find a new one.
Sorry guys my phone is acting up. It didn't post the first post until after I posted the second lol
I did some digging and a preliminary questionaire on adrenal fatigue and I appreciate the information. The preliminary pointed strongly towards adrenal issues and I got some guidance from another member to get on the right path towards healthy living. I just wanted to thank you for your assistance and knowledge on my situation. :-)
