I was diagnosed with borderline hypothyroidism more than two years ago now and about 9 months ago got prescribed Levothyroxine (25mcg), then it was upped to 50mcg, now I'm on 75mcg and apparently my blood test results came back as normal. The thing is, I still feel awful, I have been diagnosed moderate to severe depression and anxiety (which I have had on/off problems with this since my teens) and I am quite disappointed because when I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism I stupidly thought it was the answer to all my problems.
I am just under 5 feet tall and am basically wondering if anybody knows whether the measurements take into account differences in size. If the normal result is based on normal for an average sized woman, would that be applicable to me, being fairly less than average in stature.
BTW, this runs in my family as my nan and aunties have it, also my 5 year old was showing a borderline low result but it went back up to normal and I have been told that he doesn't need any follow up/check ups unless he shows symptoms.
