Hi i have had thyroid tests 3 years ago and then 1 year ago and now ..from 1 year ago my Free Thyroid (sorry is that T4 ?) has dropped from 14.5to 14 which i would guess is not to bad but my TSH has gone up from 2.6 to 4.0 in the 12 months .when i went three years ago it was because i started sleeping 8 hours instead of my normal 5 which was how i had been all my life (im 48) now ive put on nearly two sone most of that in the last 12 months and it is still going up and im eating less. making me feel awful as i have never had to worry much about my weight . My one doctor said that was why i had put on weight (THS) levels and was willing to give me thyroxcine but i was trying vitamins and kelp at the time and wanted to give it another month,sadly i'm still gaining weight so i went to the other doctor last night and he has said that i'm fine and don't need anything and that IS NOT why ive put on weight..i'm so upset and don't know what do about it all .if it isnt my thyroid what is wrong with me ? very confused is anyone else had simular levels and gained weight..so sorry for how long it is but im very confused with it all
