Hi Shirley,

Have you been diagnosed with a thyroid gland problems? On the figures you've given above, it would be good if you could provide the ranges. The figures are in brackets and as labs differ it would mean it is easier to comment.

If you are on levo, what is your dose? Your TSH looks a bit on the high side. If you haven't got the recent blood test results to hand, get a copy from the surgery and post them.

It may be that all you need is an increase in your medication and we can maybe provide evidence to give to your GP.


Hi there your tsh really shouldn't swing in a matter of months, it's looks like you have hashimotos, have you had a antibodies test , this may or may not confirm this. X
