About 2 months ago I developed a new and pretty severe depression and anxiety. I have been primal for 2 years with great success controlling my RA and losing weight. I am seeing a paleo chiropractor right now who ordered some thyroid and adrenal labs. (I did see my normal MD as well, but her only suggestion was anti-depressants).
Anyway - I got my labs back today and realized he didn't order some of the more important ones. I am wondering if any of the thyroid experts around here could tell me if they think it's worth pursing more (out of pocket) lab.
Here are my numbers:
TSH: 3.2 (ref 0.45-4.5)
Thyroxine (T4) 7.2 (ref 4.5-12)
T3 uptake 34% (ref 24-39)
Free thyroxine index 2.4 (1.2-4.9)
TPO Ab <6 (ref 0-34)
Antithyrogloblin Ab <20 (ref 0-40)
Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated. I don't have very much faith in this practitioner so any other feedback would really help me.
