    Subclinical Hypothyroidism?

    My Symptoms:

    -Horrible working memory: I'll take something out of the fridge, and forget where I put it two seconds later. I forget what I'm doing while I'm doing it. I almost leave the house in my pajama pants. I'll read a reminder note, and forget to perform the task I was being reminded about immediately. It's bad.
    -Constantly fatigued
    -Completely inverted sleep schedule
    -Significant belly fat that won't go away, despite being lean and muscular everywhere else, eating clean, and exercising 5 days a week
    -Anxiety and OCD
    -Stumble over my words, despite being intelligent, and able to articulate thoughts eloquently when writing.

    My Test Results
    I got a blood test from an endo recently, and here's what the results were:

    TSH: 1.05 (they were tested last month by a different doctor, and was 1.3 then)
    Free T4: 0.9 ng/dL
    Free T3: 3.6 pg/mL
    Total T3: 1.07 ng/mL
    Thyroid Antibodies:
    --TPO: 0.5 IU/mL
    --ATA: <0.9 IU/mL

    Hemoglobin A1C: 4.9%

    So, what do you guys think of my test results? And what do you think when combined with my symptoms? Are they good, or should I push for medication?

    I'd be surprised if the would prescribe but it's worth checking. Everyone has their sweet spot. A friend says hers is 1. I am feeling pretty good at 2.5 (on medication) but i am still pretty stupid and make endless memory errors.

    I think many doctors are going by symptoms these days.

    Worth having a chat i think.
