Hi, I'm new to this, and my first post so excuse me if I'm missing vital info!
Due to showing several symptoms of hypothyroidism, extreme fatigue being the worst, I finally got around to getting full bloods tested. Everything came back fine, including B12, folate, diabetes etc.....apart from my Thyroid function. Apparently my TSH is 8, although T4 and T3 are within range. (I'm just trying to get a print out of my results to find the full facts).
I'm guessing a TSH of 8 is enough to make me feel like I'm walking in treacle all day and have zero energy?
I have a family history, both mother and maternal grandmother having both had their thyroid removed quite young, but apparently as I'm under the magic 10, GP is not prepared to treat.
All I want to do is feel better - so blooming depressed by this. What can I do? I'm already living a healthy lifestyle, diet etc....I have to otherwise I would be the size of a small country if I don't watch my diet!!
Any thoughts anyone?
