Please please can you help me? I am a new member and quite desperate. My 19 year old type 1 diabetic daughter has just suspended her studies from university and come home with, what I think are symptoms of hypothyroidism. Extreme exhaustion and lethargy, aching muscles, great weight gain, 'fuzzy' brain, mood swings - absolutely no energy. she's even walking so slowly. Just taken her to an endo who says everything is normal. However, I have been reading a lot, and query what he is saying. TSH 2.73 (I know the US level has now been lowered to 2.5 and considering anything above should potentially be treated - at least trial treated - as hypothyroid). FT4 13.6 and FT3 4.82. I have read that many people don't feel well with these symptoms unless their TSH is somewhere between 1 and 2, and their FT4 is even above the upper range of 22.0. Please can you tell me your experiences and whether you think I am totally barking up the wrong tree. Many thanks
