Take a look at the following information from the Amer. Acad. of Clinical Endocrinologists. It tells how the current lab ranges for TSH are far too broad, and that a TSH above 2.5 with symptoms is worthy of a trial of thyroid medication.
Your TSH is about where mine was when an endo diagnosed me with Hashimoto's disease.
Try printing the AACE information and taking it to your GP. It probably won't convince him, if his ego and stubbornness are like most MDs, but it's worth a shot. Hope it works for you. http://www.aace.com/pub/tam2003/press.php http://www.aace.com/pub/tam2003/explanation.php
