I got some blood test results last week that shows that my TSH is 8.03 mIU/L and my T4 is 11.2 pmol/L , as a result my GP suggested that I might have an underactive thyroid.
I am at the moment feeling constantly tired and with depressive feelings that I cannot attribute to anything in particular, this has been affecting my life in general and I just couldn't work out what it was, I thought I was stressed out and tired but I go to bed tired and get up tired, I find it difficult to concentrate and have sensibility to cold that I didn't have before.
Initially my GP wanted me to wait for 3 months to see if the values resolved themselves but after talking to her again she agreed to have my antibodies test done (I did yesterday).
She said that if there are no antibodies I would have to wait and see rather than getting treated.
She also told me my levels of TSH weren't as bad as they could be as there is people in the 100s... I am concerned that I might need treatment but simply be made to wait and put up with it.... I would like to hear your thoughts on my values... from what I read, they aren't great... I am dreading going like this indefinitely as I truly don't feel well... any thoughts?
