: 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

Thank you all very much for your response. I'm still not sure what to do though. My doctor says
he does not know of anything else that would cause these problems, He says I'm creating the symtoms from stress or family problems and wants to put me on Zoloft. But I refused, I am very happy with everything else in my life !! This is probably the first time in my life I can say that
honestly!!! I just want to feel better so I can enjoy it !! By the way Jeanne, I am 31 and mother
of a 5 year old girl, and 9 year old boy. Does Anyone know what test I could request or Any other possible cause for my symtoms.
