I went to my family doctor in 2009 and my TSH was low (see labs below), so they sent me to an endocrinologist.
TSH - 0.302 (0.450 - 4.500)
T4, FD - 1.13 (0.61 - 1.76)
Thyroxine (T4) - 7.9 (4.5 - 12.0)
Free Thyroxine - 2.0 (1.2 - 4.9)
T3 Uptake - 25 (24 - 39)
I have been going to the endocrinologist for 3 years and I've been put on every medication for the actual symptoms, except for the thyroid. My last labs were in April.
I was very upset at my last visit because of the inability to lose weight, so they put me on an antidepressant. I have been on two exercise programs that the doctor has recommended. Currently on Weight Watchers and it has taken me 5 months to lose 10 pounds. I am currently taking these meds: Estradiol, MedroxyProgesterone, Sertraline, Fenofibric Acid, Atenolol, Potassium, Vitamin D, & Furosemide.
I have most all of the symptoms for hypo, but the doctor refuses to consider the symptoms because of the bloodwork. Could I have a Thyroid problem or NOT?
