Hello I have had blood tests recently which are
Serum tsh level 5.1, range 0.1-4
Serum free T4 level, range 9.5 - 17.5
I originally went to the doctors with numbness in my fingers and hair loss (I already suffer from androgen hair loss but it's got much worse).
I'm female and 48 years old, do my blood results indicate my thyroid could be the cause of symptoms? I've also put approx 1 stone on for no apparent reason.
I've think I've got a fairly complicated medical history, past menopause at approx 43 with no symptoms and unaware, have high blood pressure, suffer from kidney stones and was diagnosed with pulmonary sarcoidosis in January of this year.
I'm struggling to fit all meds and vitamin supplements in and am currently taking 50mcg of levothroxine in the morning but at the same time as bp meds.
I would prefer to take thyroxine at bedtime but take Utrogestan (progesterone HRT) at bedtime.
Any thoughts or guidance would be much appreciated, sorry for the long story.
