Im a 34 year old female with a TSH of 3.59 (blood test done in May 2018 by GP) Both my mother and brother have hypothyroidism and were diagnosed in their early thirties.
I have symptoms that strongly affect my daily life, the top 4 being the most problematic, which is making me miserable....
* Tired all the time
* Terrible anxiety
* I gain weight just by looking at food
* Brain fog
* Thinning hair
* Swallowing is sometimes uncomfortable
* Pins and needles
* Feel the cold
My GP wouldn't run any additional bloods as I don't meet the reference range of the labs, which he said was now 5? So no medication can be tried to see if I improve at all, as again, I'm not within the ranges.
I had private bloods done this week which showed normal TSH, T3 and T4.....but my thyoglobulin antibodies were elevated at 385 (should be 0-115)
What does this mean exactly? Is this why I have symptoms?
Any help would be much appreciated
