Re: TSH range source, and a few questions

Hmm, so working the numbers it is actually more likely that I would be antibody negative with Hashimotos than have a pituitary tumor affecting thyroid function. I just went in for an ACTH stim test yesterday, and dropped off the 24 hour urine cetacholine collection, so I should hear back about those sometime next week. I'll give the iron supplements a try, and if I'm still having symptoms that aren't improving at the follow up appointment I'll talk to her about continuing to look into thyroid issues. Thanks again.

(And I need to call the office next week to get units and lab ranges for the results. That should help get a better picture of what's going on.)
