Hey MaryF, I have a question for you about my TSH numbers. I've been doing some digging through my medical records from 2012 and I found my TSH numbers. My TSH was 3.75. I read that there is an ongoing debate amongst Physicians of whether or not patients with TSH levels over 3.0 need to be treated for Hypothyroidism. Apparently anything under a 5.0 is deemed to be a normal level. I wanted to ask you what you think about this MaryF because you are quite knowledgeable on this subject. I know you guys are going to tell me to find an APS specialist in the states and I'm working on that. I just want to know if I should push my doctors to run more tests, or to treat me for Hypothyroidism. This could explain why I am sleepy all of the time and have a hard time getting my energy levels up. I've always felt like there was something wrong with me because I always sleep a lot. I've been this way since my teenage years. Maybe there really is a link between my TSH and my APS diagnosis. Any how, I appreciate any advice you guys can give me on this.
