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
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".
