I really need your help and advice. I had a feeling I might have an underactive thyroid so asked my doc to do tests. Results are as follows:-
21/3/2013 test taken
serum TSH level =5.6 (range 0.30-6.00)
Serum free T4 level= 12.6 (range 10.0-22.0)
10/09/2014 test taken
serum TSH level =9.2 (range 0.30-6.00)
Serum free T4 level= 13.2 (range 10.0-22.0)
I do have high blood pressure and have recently just been put on medication to bring it down.
I do have symptoms: thinning hair, putting weight on, muscle/joint pain
my doc says the results are not significant enough and do not require thyroid medication but I am concerned. can anyone help with advice, does anyone know if these levels are significant, there does seem to have been a dramatic change within a year.
Many thanks for all your help, totally confused !
