I've been trying to figure out what is going on with my thyroid for the last year. In August of last year, my TSH was 2.3. The Dr. did not test T4 at that time. In October I was hospitalized and TSH was 5.7 T4 was .95. He did test prolactin then, and it was elevated. This week we had blood work done again and TSH is 3.95 and T4 is 1.13. He also did cholesterol levels and my LDL is 212!! The dr. says it doesn't need treated since it's subclinical, but I've gained 20+ pounds in 6 months! I should be bald for the amount of hair I loose. He's putting me on a statin for cholesterol, but with everything I've read, it could be out of wack due to the thyroid. I got the ,"you're 40 now speach".
Does anyone know why my levels would jump around like that? Should I be pressing him to treat my thyroid,? Any insights would be appreciated. He has never tested T3.
