Re: Am I Hypothyroid - Please read / help!
If you have a thyroid problem you would take meds daily. There are many options on the type of meds, natural and synthetic, the natural meds are...Armour, Nature Throid, Westhroid, all are dessicated pig glands, all have both T4 and T3. Some of the synthetic hormones are Thyrolar (T4 and T3) Unithroid (T4 only) Synthroid (T4 only) Levoxyl (T4 only) Levrothroid (T4 only) and there is also the T3 only called Cytomel.
T4 is converted to T3 in your liver, so I'm not sure what problems this may cause your "fatty" liver and a lot may depend on the meds chosen.
People on thyroid meds, who are on the right doses and keep their levels optimal have a good long life. Problems can set in if your dr doesn't know how to correctly treat a thyroid disorder and over or under medicates you (under medication happens more often than over).
If you could post the ranges to those lab results it would be a big help. But you are correct, your TSH is high since the AACE guidelines indicates that anything over 2.5 with symtpoms is suspect for a thyroid problem and most people with no thyroid problem have a TSH closer to or below 1
