Hi, I've just joined this site and looking for some help. I went to the doctors last week as lately I have been feeling exceptionally tired, low, anxious and weak, amongst other things. My doctor suggested blood tests and the results for my thyroid test show tsh 6.1 and normal free t4 at 14.5. My sister and my Dad both have underactive thyroid. I also have alot of other symtoms such as feeling freezing cold all the time, and I have gained a stone since November despite eating healthily I don't have a follow up app with my GP until 16th April as he is away and then I am. Do these results mean that I am borderline hypo? As free t4 is apparently normal, although on the lower side of normal. I am assuming the blood test will be repeated at some point, but my main worry is that I won't be treated with medication if I'm borderline, and I can't possibly carry on like this! Any advice or info would be appreciated?
