Is it possible to have a TSH of 3.99 and not need Thyroid Meds
I went to the doctor 8 weeks ago complaining about fatigue. She sent me to the lab.
My TSH was 3.99, Free T4: 1.2 and TRIIODOTHYRONINE - TRUE: 115.
I also was diagnosed with Pre-Diabetes, which I am treating effectively with diet.
I started with .05 of Levothroid...didn't really notice anything except i felt kind of spacy the first several days...but the fatigue didn't go away..then after 6 weeks my doctor upped me to double dose. Now I still feel fatigue along with anxiety, insomnia...Yikes! So, I asked her today should I be considering other tests or another medicine/brand. Her response was to stop taking the drug and seek therapy for anxiety. hmmmm.
A little background...Except for some normal bio-identical hrt, I haven't had meds or even seen a doctor in 10 years. That is my disclaimer, because I can see how quickly one can be labeled a hypochrondriac or doctor jumper. This is not my experience.
My question is, can a person have the TSH number I do and NOT need thyroid medicine. Could that be my normal (for me) number and taking medicine is messing me up.
