II have been having regular blood tests at my GP for the last 2 years due to low TSH and they also monitor T4.
I've just had some blood tests done with Blue Horizon and the report stated that the results have show that everything is within range except TSH. I would be grateful if you could help me to understand the Blue Horizon blood results though as I have a range of symptoms that would indicate that I am tending towards hypo (including large non-malign multi-nodular goitre, low basal temperature, and many of the other indicators.) I have read though that low TSH indicates a tendency towards hyper, so I am a bit confused.

I''d like to know if there is any other test I should have to explain the goitre and other symptoms, or is there something in these tests that show I am borderline. Should I take results to GP or is monitoring sufficient? Is there anything I can do now to improve thyroid health and possibly shrink the goitre?
