I was wondering if I could get your thoughts, I have been diagnosed with subclinical hyperactive thyroid (graves). My symptoms have been mild, primarily a change in period and some tiredness that have been around since September. I have had 2 blood tests as follows:
TSH <0.1 (0.3 - 3.05)
FT4 27.2 (10.0 - 28.2)
FT3 7.8 (4.3 - 8.1)
antibodies: not taken
Anitbodies : 3.88 (0.81 - 3)
Anitbodies : not taken
Even though my TSH is suppressed and my FT4 and FT3 would be considered in the 'normal' range my endo keeps referring to this as borderline. It has been suggested that l take Propranolol in the hope that it will bring my FT4 and FT3 down and subsequently increase my TSH. I do not have heart palpitations at the moment, my heart rate according to my tracker has increased to 71 bpm on average which is in the high end for me but this fluctuates through the month. Ideally I would like to monitor this but my endo seemed to stress the importance of protecting the heart now. It was also mentioned that private health insurance would not cover anything that was deemed 'monitoring'. We have agreed to do another blood test next month, this time with antibodies to see where they are going.
I would be grateful if you could give your thoughts as to what you would do in this situation.
Thanks in advance for any responses!
