Hi, I am a 50yr old male and for some time I have suspected that I have an issue with my thyroid as I have many of the symptoms associated with hypothyroidism (fatigue, anxiety, brain fog, muscle pain etc).
Given that my TSH is 1.4 I figured I would have no joy with my GP so on the recommendation of a friend who belongs to this forum I have a thyroid profile done at Genova.
I would be extremely grateful if any of you knowledgable folk could look at my results and give me your opinion.
TSH 1.4 (1.0 - 2.0)
T4 53 (77 - 150)
FT4 12.7 (12 -20)
FT3 3.6 (3.4 - 6.0)
FT4:FT3 ratio 3.5 (2.5 - 4.5)
My T4 is below the lower end of the range and when I look at what this means it seems to perfectly describe my problems and that I would benefit from thyroxine.
Grateful for any thoughts, also is a GP likely to help or will I have to go elsewhere?
