I had a blood test done as I have suspected thyroid problems due to many of the symptoms such as weight gain, difficulty losing weight, tiredness, intolerance to cold, very cold hand and feet.
I went to see my doctor today and she told me my results were "slightly borderline" but mostly normal. I am unsure of what she tested apart from my TSH levels but when I asked her for the results and the range she said the range is 0.25 to 4 and my results are 4.25. To me that is not borderline but above normal and when I asked her what else could be causing my symptoms she had no other suggestions. I said to her that I was not convinced of the results and she agreed to refer me to an endocrinologist but that could take months and I would like to know what information anyone can tell me about my results. I don't know how high some people's levels are who test high enough for a doctor to suspect a problem, but my doctor has refused to give me any medication as she says unnecessary medication is detrimental. She also says that a lot of people who have hypothryroidism often don't show symptoms but have high levels of TSH.
Is there anything I can do to help with the symptoms until I can see an endocrinologist?
