I was diagnosed hypothyroid a week ago but doctor won't medicate yet as she said my TSH level was not high enough TSH was 5.2 (0.27 - 4.20) T4 was 10.9 (12.0 - 22.0) so when I asked about my breathlessness she sent me for a lung test which was clear. Apart from on going 6 weekly tests that was it :/ I have been self medicating with T3 the past week, half a TIROMEL twice daily for 3 days and then 25gm morning then half tablet at 5pm and just noticed today that the breathlessness has stopped but I have put 4lbs weight on. I have been watching my calorie intake and I confess I have been over 1500 calories most days but not enough to warrent such a weight increase. Any information appreciated.
