Just got bloodwork done. TSH = 2.38 (range 0.30-5.50) Free T3 = 5.8 (range 4.0-7.8) Free T4 = 17 (range 11-22) Ferritin = L11 (normal is >14)
I've had symptoms for quite a while, weight gain/unable to lose weight despite meticulous diet and exercise. (Female, 5'5 200lbs . Swimming, running, circuit training and hot yoga 4-5x per week and using myfitness pal as calorie tracker. Currently set at 1680 cal per day) Extreme hair loss- clumps coming out in the shower, weak/chipped fingernails. Fatigue, muscle aches (especially in my calves) difficulty falling asleep, brain fog, mild joint pain and being absolutely ravenous after dinner, even though I eat properly ever couple hours throughout the day. Doc says my thyroid is in normal range, but just to take an iron supplement for the low ferritin result. I took a thyroid supplement for 2 weeks before seeing the doc to get tested and it helped a lot especially with energy and appetite after dinner. Should I ignore the doc and keep taking the supplement or should I get a second opinion?
