Blood test results

Postby Monsterpage » Wed Jul 16, 2014 1:14 pm

I've just had my blood test results back and the GP said they were fine, so didn't indicate PCOS, but suggested testing for hyperthyroidism.

I suffer from excess hair, excess weight (esp around my middle), erratic periods (I'm currently on day 73 of no period) and I find it incredibly difficult to lose weight. Plus we have been ttc for the last 6 months and the OV predictor kits are saying I'm not ovulating. When I was pregnant 2 years ago I suffered with gestational diabetes and was put on metformin.

All these factors seemed to point to PCOS but having been told my levels are normal I am disappointed as I was sure that was what e problem was. I don't know anything about hypothyroidism.

My blood results were as listed below - the blood was taken a few days ago - about day 69 of my cycle - so I don't know where I am in my cycle - is there anything there that people think I should be asking the GP about? Thanks in advance for reading and for any help x
