New test results

I had a tsh test in March and it was 1.19.

I just had tsh done again as feeling low, achey, tiered, can't sleep and anxiety ect and it's come back at 1.54. So dr won't do anything as I'm guessing its "in range"

What test could I ask for? And is there anything I can print off saying I need these tests before I write myself off and give up.

Thanks x

CLMartin, ask your GP to raise your Levothyroxine to 75mcg to resolve your symptoms. TSH on medication should be just above or below 1.0 although some need it in the lower range 0.2-0.5. If your GP won't test FT4 and FT3 you can order private tests from Blue Horizon and Genova via

Ask your GP to test ferritin, vitamin D, B12 and folate as fatigue, musculoskeletal pain and low mood can be experienced when they are low/deficient.


Those sound as if they could possibly be adrenal symptoms rather than thyroid to me. Order the saliva cortisol test from Genova UK and see what your cortisol levels are throughout the day.
