Morning everyone, two months ago my TSH level was 5.1 ( 0.5-5.0) and was termed as sub clinical hypothyroid (borderline). I have learnt as of January 17, the lab has changed its reference range to 0.5-4.2.
Does this mean I know fall into the range whereby I might get medication from my gp ?
I am 60 years old and an under active thyroid runs down the female line in my family.
I have a lot of hypothyroidism symptoms and was now wondering, in light of this new information, how to approach my gp.
Any thoughts and advice from you would be appreciated.
