I dont know much about this yet, I am newly diagnosed, but I have heard TSH can vary depending on what you eat. Have you been tested more than once?
My level was on the low side of normal, but my dr. is treating it. (I have had 3 miscarriages... that is what he suspects the problem to be.) We have very fine tuned bodies!

: hello, i've been reading the board for a couple of weeks hoping to find an answer. i've decided to post my questions. this board is GREAT! i wish i would have found it a few months ago,but very thankful to have it now. anyway, my questions. i am 27, female 2 children (2&4). i have every and mean every symptom of hypothyroid with a few hyperthyroid. completely convinced was hypo, but TSH came back .09 which is hyper (or high side of normal,dr.'s words). not losing weight, extreme fatigue, problems sleeping at night, but could fall over at anytime during day and can't hardly wake up in mornings, hands swelling worst in morning and eve.,some in feet, acne(always complete clear complection),muscles and joints hurt and ache,hair breaking off to the point had to get it all cut off,slight incontience,dry skin,very forgetful,rapid pulse could go on and on. pitutary gland was norm.(what dr. said) adrenal gland was little low at 10, did some kind of stimulating test and said looks like adrenal norm. blood sugar little low at times during these test 62 and 66. bought home blood sugr. tester, he thought maybe hypoglycemia, stays pretty normal, a little low at times. anywho, dr.thinks complete hypoglycemia. i don't. oh, my thyroid is enlarged did ultrasound (at endo.)he called it a goiter. regular doc said TSH in middle of range when i said, wasn't it .09, he said yes, it ranges from .05-6 so .09 is in the middle. Endo. said little on the high side but not the problem. what do i do. does it sound like thyroid to any of you? i have always been entergetic, not hyper, just could accomplish whatever i needed to do,now i'm doing good to get out of bed. Please help! i've got to feel better, my 4yr. old daughter,says mommy i miss you and it breaks my heart. she can tell a difference. Sorry to just keep going. i needed to get all that out. thanks. please reply.
