Doesn't look like it's your thyroid, as I can see you measured free T4, what about free T3?, Have you done a full blood test, C reactive protein, cortisol in the morning, hemoglobin, ferritin, etc, If you think you have a goiter you should do an ultrasound of your thyroid.
Who is treating you? you're having so many anti-depressants....
Anti-depressants are known to cause weight gain.
You can try looking into that.
also have had thyroid ultrasound and have nodules.
as for the T4, i thought 4.5 to 11 was normal for an adult. 1.1 seems low to me. i have had a cortisol check and although i have not seen the results the doctor that i fired said that it was fine.
my ferratin is 13.5 i just got that handled with the hemotologist as it was low and i had to get the iron thru IV.
as for the goiter, when i went to see my last endo for the second time, she wasn't there but her RN was. so she asked me if the dr ever talked to me about a goiter because of the fullness of my thyroid. i said no. the endo didn't follow up on the next appointment.
antidepressants do cause weight gain but you can loose weight by eating 6 small meals a day protien and a carb. Cut out sodas and sugar These 2 are notorious for aggravating depression.
Exercise at least 30 min a day even if it is just a brisk walk. It will help to elevate your mood and control your weight.
I have lost 46 pounds by doing this and I take zyprexa and celexa for bi polar . these 2 are the worst for weight gain.
Free T4 of 1.1 is normal, are sure they measured free T4? where did you got those values (4.5-11)?
Ferritin is your iron storage, 13 is low for a man, but how is your Hb levels (hemoglobin), RBC count?
If you have nodules, multiple nodules are better then having only one (one is always suspect), so you must talk to the ENDO (if they measure more then 1 cm). Most of your symptoms (not the weight) probably are related to anemia. You must explore that, why you have anemia? (not frequent in men) you must ask the doctor for a full blood count, blood smear, transferrin, reticulocyte count, folic acid, vit B12, iron level, billirubin.
