Patty, it all depends on what other symptoms you have, but the blood test result don’t really show that you have Graves’ disease (hyperthyroidism) or hypothyroidism. The best would be to see a specialist physician and have it sorted out. Good luck.

A further blood test was done 2003.01.17 and the results show TSH is now 3.21, still awaiting the anti body results. The only other symtons which I can put my finger on is, tingling in my hands, very very tired even in the morning, lost 8kg since September 2002 even though I still eat the same, and off course the increase in the cholestrol levels.
