Thyroid Function test

I think I may have an underactive thyroid gland but I am not sure at the moment. I was tested for this in 2008 the test resuls came back and were,

Serum TSH Level 1.56
Serum Free T4 Level 11.8

However, the last 6 months I have been feeling depressioned and I have had no energy. My hair has started thinning I have been constipationed for ever also have the following, dry skin, weight gain, always feel cold.

I went back to my doctors to day and told him that I think I may have a thyroid problem he said you need to go and have some more blood test done,

So could anyone please let me know what you think on this matter.

Thank you.

Re: Thyroid Function test

Do you have the ranges that came with that free T4 test you had done?

Ask for another free T4 as well as a free T3 and you should also test your ferritin, vitamin D and B12 levels. And ask for the thyroid antibody tests, TPO and TG. This will give you a better idea of what your thyroid function is.
