I'm 26 years old, 5'4" and 108 lbs. I have no hypothyroidism symptoms except my TSH level was 7.56. (Also low Vitamin D)
I moved recently and found a new GP, so she did bloodwork to get a base. I never really had a full blood work up before. I mentioned both my mother and my younger brother have hypothyroidism (both are also overweight) and my aunt has Graves Disease (She is having surgery for her eyes).
I also have high cholesterol so I'm currently changing my diet drastically. I really liked fried and processed foods, but I've stopped cold turkey. I'm committed to eating very healthy now and, honestly, I'm surprised after toughing it out for a week it's much easier!
Anyways, She started me on 25mcg Levothyroxine and I'm going to get an ultrasound on my thyroid to see if I have any nodules (apparently my brother has one on his.). I'm also going back to get blood work done in 1 month. She seemed a little concerned with my TSH level as I have no symptoms and mentioned recommending me to an endocrinologist after these tests.
Should I be worried about loosing too much weight? Not only am I eating way healthier, but also starting on Levothyroxine? I've been reading up here on this forum a little. Should I ask for other tests? Like T3 and T4? Is this typical or not really? I guess I'm looking for general opinions and information.
