Hey all, got routinely tested for thyroid issues a few months ago when had some issues with Bp. I am 37 year old lady who is pretty healthy asides.
I have been tired and a bit more anxious last few years and metabolism has slowed but all put down to starting to get a little older. In Jan my thyroid tests were borderline hypo so said to repeat in three months.
In Jan my
TSH 4.43 ( 0.30-4.40)
Free T4 normal
Vit B12 165 (130-900)
Mcv 102 (80-100)
Mch 34.6 (27-33)
So repeated thyroid 2 weeks back and now
TSH 6.72 (.30-4.40)
Free T4 13.1 ( 9-19.01)
Anti TPo antibodies 512 so positive as meant to be less than 6.
Just went to see Gp who said was in grey area to treat and would likely leave another three months unless I feel worse to see if changes but because of positive antibodies will need treatment at some point but they don't know when to start?!
So bit confused at point of retesting in three months again , do I need to really go in and be really sick before treat and is it worth seeing specialist/ getting other tests?
Thank u 😊
