I went to my GP who said my results, which he did not share, were borderline. And that i should ask to be retested 3 months, then 6 months....then not bother any more. I'm not waiting 6 months as I now have another option, for a while at least.
My own recent medichecks tests which I already posted here were TSH 9.05 (0.27-4.2) and T3 and T4 normal but lowish - T4 lower in range than T3. So I am guessing my "status" hasn't changed much over 10 years or so when I had similar results of TSH about 7 and T4 low normal. Then, I started my own meds under advice from Dr P.
I'm going to restart these and if I can no longer pay I will have to go back - not to that GP - to try again. Has anyone any advice about guessing how long before a "borderline" thyroid issue like mine would resurface after stopping meds. This time it was about 3 months when I stopped because of costs. I had mostly symptoms of feeling cold - some low body temps - but fluctuating. I would go by these again probably but wonder how much the time of year is significant - e.g., would TSH rise over the winter and reduce in the summer (assuming reasonable temps!). i remember Dr P saying I might not need support in sunnier climes.
