Hope someone can give me some advice after receiving some blood results back today of TSH 1.01 (normal range 0.27 - 4.2) and T4 free 12.3 (normal range 12.0 - 22.0)
To give you some background - 2 years ago I went to the G.P with symptoms of hypothyroidism. She did blood tests, said they were normal and put me on anti depressants even though I wasn't sure I needed them.
My symptoms, (constipation, fatigue, dry skin, feeling cold etc ) continued so I visited a naturopath who asked to look at the blood results. He told me that only the TSH had been done. In the meantime I had been back to the GP with the same symptoms as originally and she told me to eat more fibre!
After seeing the naturopath I asked the GP to do a T4 test and she refused. So last week I paid for one and the results were as above.
Does this indicate secondary/tertiary hypothyroidism? I should add the symptoms haven't gone anywhere.
I have a 3 year old and a 5 year old and I am wondering if a problem could have been triggered by the birth of my second child. I didn't notice the tiredness straight away after having her obviously because after having a baby you are tired for several months anyway!
I have an appointment to see the doctor (a different one) next week. Any advice?
Thanks in advance,
