Hello, I am a newbie to this site and I was wondering if anyone can point me in the right direction please. For the past few years I have been putting on weight and my body feels really hot . I am 53 and my doctors thinks its menopause but the heat going through my body is not like a quick flush but it goes on for ages especially in the morning and evening. I have been to the GP several times and she has done serum TSH : 1.0 miu/L [0.2-5.5] these are the results . The gp says normal but Im struggling to function. I hope someone can help. Thanks in advance Dee

You need more than TSH to get a full picture of your thyroid. You need
and it would be a good idea to also test
If your GP can't get them all done then we have private labs where you can get a home fingerprick (or venous blood draw) test that covers all of the above.

The trouble with just measuring tsh
Is that it doent give the clinician
The full picture
First of all thyroid hormones only measure
So much so sometimes you may
Need a different test
The doctors should measure your
Anti tpo's to see if there are
Any thyroid antibodies
Ok, really tired,
Also if you can , measure ft3 and ft4 too
