Prelimary results in and i'm totally freaked out!
So at 5:40 today we received preliminary results for Tyson's thryroid panel from Hemopet and I feel sick. I was so hoping it would just show clear cut thryroid issue and we could get him help and move on to happier times! The results are:
T4 1.38 (1.40 - 3.40) Case specific range - Low
Free T4 1.11 (.80 - 2.20) normal
T3 51.3 (30 -70) normal
Free T3 2.60 (1.8 - 3.5) normal
all remaining bloodwork is still pending
I was happy to see that the T4 was considered low and thought we were getting somewhere until I saw the end of the report:
"Dear Collegue, Thyroid levels are normal overall here although T4 could be higher. The low T4 likely reflects a non-thyroidal issue. The remainder of the bloodwork is pending."

I could just cry, I guess this means we are not getting any help and I am so frustrated!
