: I was tested for a thyroid disorder about six months ago, I have every single symtom of an underactive thyroid. But doc says I am normal. Normal people aren't tired all the time and can't gain five pounds in a single day. I have not improved and I am continuing to gain weight rapidly despite my
: efforts of diet and exersise. These were my results can someone tell me if there was something overlooked.
: Or if I need to be retested. Or maybe another explaination for my symtoms.
: Vitamin B12 432
: TSH 0.56
: Thyroxine (T4) 5.13
: T-Uptake 31
: Free Thyroxine index 1.59
: T3, Total 0.76
: Free T4 0.79
Leslie, It looks as though you are in the lower end of "normal" One thing that didn't add up is all you levels are low. Your TSH would be low if your hypo but the T4 should be high. I would ask my doctor what else it could be to be giving you these low levels. Some people who are on the end limits of the ranges some times do better with meds but discuss it with your Dr.
