TSH result normal

Hi all

Thank you to Aprilpow for responding to my previous post (under and over-active thyroid).

My TSH level was 0.96 which I am told is normal. I am also told that they won't test the T3 & T4 levels unless the TSH level is abnormal.

Depression (anhedonia) is my main health concern but have always had cold hands and feet, a voracious appetite, unable to gain weight, tired all the time, could sleep for england etc. etc.

Does anyone have any ideas on what it could be if not a thyroid problem? I am convinced that there is a medical problem. How can someone possibly eat an unhealthy and high calorie diet, do no exercise as such (I hate exercising) and still not put any weight on?

Would really appreciate your thoughts.

Re: TSH result normal

Your TSH is in a healthy range. You have an odd combination of symptoms. Fatigue & depression, sleepiness, etc sound hypo. The eating and inability to gain weight sound hyper.

You really need to have your free T4 & free T3 levels checked. You may have to really push for this. Docs rely on the almighty TSH as the gold standard.
