Last Thursday I was feeling pretty BLAH and decided I’d better take myself to the doctor. I’ve been having issues lately and it was time to rule stuff out.
With all the UTI stuff going on in our house I was a bit paranoid that I might have a UTI due to the fact that it felt like I was living in my bathroom. Turns out that can happen when you are drinking lots of water.
My urinalysis came back NEGATIVE.
While at the doctor we decided it has been awhile since my last blood draw to monitor my Thyroid.
For those that don’t know this about me I am Hypothyroid and have had it since spring 2006. But, my thyroid wasn’t just a little bit off it was a full blown HASHIMOTOS off the charts autoimmune Hypothyroidism.
I’ve been on 100 MCG of Synthroid every single day ever since the diagnosis which seems to be keeping everything in check. I just have to stay on top of my blood draws and take myself in to see the doc whenever I’m feeling BLAH.
My left arm got poked. My right arm got poked. They couldn't get any of my veins to cooperate. Finally my finger got poked. Facebook pokes are definitely taken for granted and I've learned to appreciate them more.
Turns out my TSH result is 2.0 which is good because the range they are looking for is between .48 and 5.90.
My Free T4 result is 1.3 which is also good because the range they are looking for is between .8 and 1.7.
Overall my levels check was NORMAL.
