Low TSH, weight gain, osteoporosis

For several years I have had a low TSH blood results (.27, .14, )I am postpartum 4 1/2 months, last test result TSH .27 L, T-4 free/1.1, T-3 free 297 along with a vitamin D defic. I have had a steady increase in weight over the last several years and can't seem to get if off, low body temp, no sex drive, irritable, moody, fatigue and list goes on. I also had established osteoporosis (at the age of 34) back in 2003 and 2004 but have improved to osteopenia. I have been to two doctors with no answers of how to get to feeling better, no medications have been prescribed other than the Boniva and calicum/Vit D for bones. Do I need thyroid meds? Any suggestions really tired of feeling tired.

The thyroid levels suggest borderline HYPERthyroidism - which (by the numbers) does not yet need treatment.  Cannot explain weight based on thyroid dysfunction.

The low vitamin D and early osteoporosis are suggestive of celiac sprue -- ask you doc to be tested for this and make sure the vitamin D levels are normal -- this can cause fatigue.  We don't know the effects of meds like boniva on pregnancies -- so would generally avoid w/ pregnancy.
