Hi all I m cp from Malaysia and new to this forum. Glad that I joined this forum as there are pretty much information on thyroid.
Was diagnosed with low TSH <0.01mIU/L 2-3years back but didn't bother so much about it and didn't go for any medication. I have started to notice constant weight gain then and had difficulties to shed pounds. Early this year, I have ridges on both my thumbnail, my heart beat was irregular as if sometimes I didn't feel any heart beats and at times it palpitated badly; hair falling and thining has been observed in recent months. This keeps me worry. I am thinking to see endocrinologist again to seek proper medication.
Can advise what should be tested from blood sample? All the type of hormones? TSH/T3/T4? What about pituitary gland? Any kind of test? Can we get a rid of this thyroid problem permanently? Must medication the only choice available to control the proper function of our thyroid problem? What would be the period of medication? Life time? Any side effect?
Appreciate feedback. Thank you all.
