Thyroid Levels

I went for a Doctor’s appointment yesterday. We’re basically just going to wait to see what happens. My TSH (Thyroid Stimulating Hormone) is still sitting at .01 (basically inactive) and my T3 and T4’s are a bit high, but not anything to really get freaked about. I’m climbing though, so it’s getting slightly worse, but not at an increase that’s going to suddenly drive me over the edge. In October, my first test result was a 24. Now it’s a 27. He’d be freaking out if it was a 50 and my eyes were bulging out and I couldn’t sit still because my heart was racing. But I’m not so I’m not freaking out either. The Plan? I have a bottle of Beta Blockers just in case and I’ve got a standing order at the Lab for blood work every 4 or 5 weeks for the next year.

So, no pills yet, no answers yet, but my mind is at ease (kind of). Like I told someone today, I’m OK with waiting because I’m a pretty patient person. I’m not OK with waiting AND wondering, so at least now I know a bit more about it all.

  1. Glad it’s nothing too serious right now 🙂

  2. I wish you the best! Glad to hear you aren’t feeling too terrible, although I know what that racing heart can feel like.

  3. Breathe easy…glad you’re feeling good about the situation.

  4. It’s good to know what is going on (sort of) but be able to take the wait and see approach. As long as you are feeling pretty good right now, isn’t that what matters most?
