Post Brand new here with a few questions~

I went to the dr. because my blood sugar drops to the mid 30's & 40's from time to time and I am tired all of the time with aches & pains of an 80 year old. (I am only 40) She refers me to an endo which will take a month to get in to see. So in the mean time she wants to run some test.
Everything looked normal except my TSH came back at 5.09 She tell me this is a little high and I need to come back in and retest next week.
The test just says THS, High Sensitivity 0.45-4.5 normal and my number is 5.09. So my question is could I feel this crabby even though I am just a little out of the normal range. Are there any vitamins or anything that will make me feel better? I just feel like crying knowing that I have fell this way for at least another month until I can get in to see the endo.
Thanks~

yes ~ you can feel that out of sorts with TSH of only 5.09. A healthy persons TSH is usually around 1.0 +/- a bit. (my TSH was 1.23 b4 thy issues) For some unknown reasons, the newer guidelines of .3 -3.0 are ignored.

After your 2nd blood test, your Doctor may start you on Thy medicine BEFORE you see the Endo. Just remember that taking Thy meds isn't like taking an asprin. They are not an instant fix. Often, it takes A LOT of tinkering before a patient before a patient feels any lasting change.

Sorry I don't believe there is a supplement that would fix this. I'd suggest being kind to your body, eating good, taking a quality multi-vit, getting as much sleep as you can.
take care & keep us posted
Sue
