I have all the systems of hypothyroidism which I have had

Resolved Question:

HI, I have all the systems of hypothyroidism which I have had for over a year now, I got my blood results back today and they are, T3 5.05 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8), T4 16.4 pmol?l (12.0 - 22.0), TSH 1.3mU/L (0.27 - 4.2). My doctor is at a loss as to what it could be and has suggested I learn to live with it, do you have any idea what it could be.

No, my GP is sending me to a bone specialist for my arthritis but other than that I'm pretty much on my own, I'm also suffering from depression and they keep trying to offer me antidepressants which I don't want
