I have had my thyroid tested by my GP and informed it's 'normal' but when I asked for the actual numbers I learned my TSH is 3.31. I know this is in the normal range for UK guidelines but I've read that advocacy groups have an issue with those ranges as in the USA 3.0 is generally accepted as the top of normal. I am suffering the symptoms of hypothyroidism, including high cholesterol, and my mum has hypothyroidism and I know it can be genetic (I'm 32). Is there anything I can do about this? I can (just about) afford to see a private Dr., would that help? Can I make my NHS GP send me to an endocrinologist? Would that help? Like many here I'm really confused and frustrated.
