I was recently diagnosed with subclinical hypothyroidism TSH 7.8 not sure what T4 is but think it may be in the normal range if this was the diagnosis.
I was told that i would not be treated if TSH is below 10. I have symtoms of tiredness, flat mood, really heavy periods, weight gain that wont be shifted, high cholesterol and can tick a few others off the extensive list. Im just trying to inform myself before going back to GP. I have read that it is at the doctors discression if a trial period of treatment should be given if TSH is below 10. (Apparantly the cut off is 2.7 in USA!)
Ive been looking at thyroxine tho and it seems people are having loads of problems with it. Weight gain etc..
I am a 43 year old busy mum.
Not sure if I should just put up with the symtoms I have now.
