Thyroid range

Hi... my recent thyroid test results are:
                                Normal range as mentioned by lab
T3  6.02 pmol/l             3.1  - 6.8
T4  13.61 pmol/l           12.0-22.0 pmol/l
TSH 5.85ulU/ml            0.27 - 4.2 ulU/ml

I am 26 years old female. This is the first time i noticed imbalance in thyroid. Dr. did not prescribe any medicines as he wants to watch for 2 more months. He asked me to reduce weight by doing as much possible physical activities for 2 months (as i have gained 14 kgs over a year) and then repeat tests.

What do you suggest? I am really worried about this

What symptoms do you have that would indicate hypothyroidism?

I suggest keeping a journal on ~everything~ you are eating or drinking, put the calories also (calorieking.com is what I use), get a heart rate monitor (if you can afford one..I have a Polar) to keep ~your~ (per your height/weight/etc) calories burned/time exercising...and of course jot down your symptoms..daily.

I call this my "Dear Endo Diary" ,lol. I suggest this because, as many of us hypos can tell you, it is ~extremely~ hard to loose weight being hypo without our levels correct; and this will show your doctor what you have been doing, and that it's ~not~ just the "you need to eat less, exercise more".

I hope this helps,
:D

Oh, and (yep I have brain fog too)..add in a daily or weekly weigh in. I do daily because as my family says I'm "anal" aka obsessive.
