hello, I am 20 years old, third year university student who discovered that I have hypothyroidism 5 months ago. I felt fine and I have not taken levothyroxin until recently.. being stressed now because of my final exams.. and feeling unmotivated to study. I do sometimes feel tired now and then, bloating, brain fog and short-term memory problems.
-I have been taking kelp supplement for 1 month.
last time I checked before 2 months and My TSH was 17 yet my t4, t3 are normal.
and today's test- tells me I have 6 TSH.
info about my blood work before 2 months:
T4-free 0.9 [normal range: (0.8-1.5)]
T3- free 2.5 [normal range: (2.3-4.2)]
Thyroglobulin ab- 2378 [it should be less than 100]
Anti thyroid peroxid 1074 [it should be less than 50]
does'nt this tell that I have hashimato's autoimmune disease?
I DO NOT KNOW what is my next step.. should I stop taking levothyroxine and test after one month to see if the TSH elevated again.. and then take levothyroxine..
or keep taking levothyroxine and wait.
