I don't know whether I should start medicating or not;
1and half years ago my TSH level was 8:63, 8 months later it was 5.62 and now it is 3.62 (normal range 0.3 - 4.40)
My T4 however has gone from 11.0 to 10.7 and is now 10.4 (normal range 9.0 - 19)
I also have hashimoto's disease with my last count 250
When I found out I was hypothyroid I started taking B12 injections (once every three months) three Brazil nuts a day (Selenium) and cut out 90 % of gluten as well as exercising 5 times a week.
The only symtoms I have (that I know about) - bad back - slight constipation- and sore feet . My BP is slightly raised (115/88).
I have not had my T3 tested as the GP stated that it "means nothing" so my questions are
(1) Should I have T3 tested.
(2) If I do not go on medication can I be building myself up for long term health problems
Any comments would be helpful
