Good morning, Thanks for looking at this post.
At the beginning of the year tests showed that my TSH was over 3.6, vit D on the floor and Total T4 86 / Free T3 4.00 / Free T4 13.4 and reverse T3 over range at 26.
Lifelong problems with cold, weight gain, low energy and other hypo symptoms ... couldn't lose weight on various diets.
Consulted Dr S from TUK list of private doctors and was prescribed various supplements plus progesterone cream. I'm late 50s but my problems aren't related to age in my opinion.
Here are the latest results. I have a thyroid scan booked for next week but think maybe I don't need it ...
Dr S said I could perhaps move onto T4/T3 med at a later date if supplements don't work to clear the problems. I haven't shared results with him yet as I feel you folks on the forum are even better informed ...
