Looks like you need more! How do you feel?


Thank you HarryE - not great. Sore fingers, toes, wrists, legs, sinus, snoring and of course tired/lethargic. Oh and FAT!


Then yes, I think you need more. The high cholesterol is also a hypo symptom so that should drop on proper treatment. You should be aiming for a TSH of about 1 and a free t4 in the upper quarter of your reference range. If your GP doesn't agree with that plan, get a copy of the little thyroid disorders book that is sold in most pharmacies by Dr toft. That backs it up.
