Hi all, new here!
I'm 23 years old, female, and have symptoms which I think are hypothyroidism - cold, tired, always have pale skin, constipation, carpal tunnel, brain fog, anxiety, puffy cheeks and face, irregular periods, acne, stomach sensitivity, eczema, low ferritin, low folate, low B12 (test for pernicious anaemia was inconclusive) and low vit D and blood test results from October showed I'm outside of the normal range:
Free T4: 13.5 pmo/L (12.00 - 22.00)
TSH: 5.2 mu/L (0.27 - 4.20)
I was just tested for those two things as it was part of a whole host of other tests to get to the bottom of heavy menstrual bleeds I have had since age 13. I was quite poorly when I was a lot younger and my mum suffers from underactive thyroid and I have a family history of autoimmune disease. Thanks very much for any help anyone can give.
