I am seeking help and advice for my daughter who is 19 years old and has started to suffer health problems which do not seem to concern medical professionals. She is suffering from constant tiredness, low energy, feeling cold, erratic periods and unexplained weight gain.
We were told by GP that everything is normal so we paid for advanced thyroid test, results as follows:
Free T4 14.4(11-26)
Free T3 4.1(3.1-6.8)
Thy. peroxidase abs. >10(0-50)
These results, although within normal range seem to be below midpoint and don't look optimal. Can anyone please help as we don't know what to do next? There is a family history of underactive thyroid but I don't know if this is relevant. My daughter tries to heat healthily and she exercises well when she can but she remains 20lbs over her normal weight, yet she has always been slender and active in the past. I appreciate any advice x thank you x
