    Opinions needed:

    First timer here. All my lab work came back good except for my triglycerides were a bit high. My TSH was the following, but the GP said it was good.

    Component Your Value Standard Range
    TSH 5.000 uIU/mL 0.270 - 4.200 uIU/mL

    It's definitely not "good".
    Hypothyroidism is the leading cause of poor lipid profiles after poor diet.
    Here's some information about that effect ~ [Copy and paste the URL into your browser address bar.] ~ https://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pmc/articles/PMC3109527/

    If you have other signs/symptoms of low thyroid, they won't get any better without supplemental thyroid hormone. If you desire treatment, you'll likely have to find a smarter MD to get it.

    Your GP is mistaken. That is ridiculous. I would be dead with those numbers.TSH, specifically.
