Hello, sorry for a second post on this forum today - feeling a bit low and lost right now.
I got my blood results back today and my TSH is at 3.1 (range 0.27- 4.2). Don't have antibodies so not autoimmune. I've had some great advice already from Clutter and Shaws that this is a sign my thyroid is starting to struggle. (full results history is in my last post from earlier today).
What I don't quite understand is what to do next. I need to take some action because my concentration levels are so low and it's affecting my work quite badly. I'm such a slow thinker these days and that's not like me.
So what can I be doing now that's productive for my health?
Are there other things that could cause a TSH to be on the higher side (E.g. other hormone imbalances or dietary issues). And if so, is it possible to reduce the TSH naturally and prevent it from becoming full blown hypothyroidism in the future? Obviously I would rather do that than have to just wait for it to become worse and then take medication always.
I'm sorry if this seems like a stupid question - I've just been doing lots of reading and trying to understand how the thyroid interacts with other systems in the body but I can't quite get my head around it all.
Also, from reading on here it seems like adding magnesium to my current supplement routine might help. How much per day do people take?
Thanks for any help people can offer - just feeling stuck at the moment. I just want to feel better.
