Any help appreciated, nervous about results and apt not until next week.
Hi there, I know its hard to wait....I'm new to all of this so please take my interpretation accordingly.
Your FT4 is 3.9% of the range and your FT3 is 28% of the range. VERY low....guidelines I have read say you should shoot for FT4 around 50% of range and FT3 in the upper third of range (e.g. 66% or higher).
I don't have Hashi's but given the presence of nodules and your antibody result it appears you may have Hashimoto's.
How are you feeling, do you have symptoms? Give it a few days, I'm sure you will get some feedback from others as well.
Take care, Kel
Thanks so much for replying.
Yes I have most of the symptoms. Fatigue, forgetfulness, hair loss, dry skin, hoarseness, trouble swallowing. I am also being tested for carpal tunnel which I read is related to Hashimotos. I am expecting that diagnosis. Just hoping that the nodules are not cancerous.
