Hi Firefighter.

I tested TSH 1.5 and my endocronologist suggested trialling 25 micrograms. So ASK what your test results are, and do some reading up, so you can argue the toss if you're still borderline.


Parliament Early day motion about low thyroid being undetected in thousand of people:

Interpret your thyroid blood test results (easy to follow diagram)

EDITED TO CHANGE typo - 1.5 not 15!

Is it safe to take thyroid support supplement when my thyroid is healthy?
I have a family history of thyroid disorders. My mom had thyroid cancer and my father had hyperthyroid. I had a goiter 3 years ago. It was drained and turned to be benign. My recent blood work indicated that my thyroid is functioning normally. However, I have been feeling a bit sluggish and have put on over 10 pounds in the last 5 months without changing my eating habits at all. Any advice is appreciated!

I wasn't diagnosed with under active thyroid for 10 years because my bloodtest was ' borderline' but as i've got fibromyalgia - which unbeknownst to me , is linked with it, the doc should of picked it up! But as soon as i started taking it my life changed, i gave up using a wheelchair, 2 years later could walk without a stick and now 7 years later, i have just cycled across europe!! so anybody with symptoms should badger their drs - it is so common - my mum was diagnosed at same time! But then i didn't have PCOS diagnosed for years cos doc thought it was the fibromyalgia too!!
