This is the first blood test of my husband who is obviously in hypothyrodism which explains his constant tiredness.

Does anyone knows if it has an impact on the libido too?

Thanks for all your answers.

Have a great week-end.

Hypothyroidism affects every single thing in our body, libido included.

An increase in dose is warranted in order to bring TSH to around 1 or lower. Usually increments are in 25mcg every six weeks (after blood test) until symptom-free. TSH should be around 1 or lower with FT4 and FT3 in the upper part of the range. I shall add SeasideSusie as she is knowledgeable about vitamins/minerals.

This is a list of clinical symptoms.
