Hi I am new to the board any advice suggestions will be helpful.
I went to a specialist a few months ago She said even though my thyroid numbers show in range they are low readings She gave Me the THR stimulation test and She said I have an underactive thyroid and She prescribed Armour thyroid 30 mg's
I decided to wait to take anything and go to an Endocrinologist He said it is underactive He ran a ton of test that all came back normal He said He feels it is very mild and I don't need meds and so did My primary.
Here is my latest readings my numbers are in the bold:
Meanwhile I am tired beyond belief and loose a toon of hair everyday get palpitations, states of panic for no reason, & night sweats.
T4 1.38 (reference range 0.82-1.77)
TSH 2.270 (reference range 0.450-4.500)
T3 uptake 31 (reference range 24-39
THR stimulation test 22.35 ( reference range 8.0-15.0)
Any advice would help I thought maybe to try the Armour and see how I feel with it I feel so frustrated and stressed by all of this & I really hate that the Endo through the depressed card at Me I told Him I am not and I just want to feel like Myself again just because I am young doesnt mean there is nothing wrong.
Thanks Guys Hugs
