Hi
What is your most recent TSH?
Customer: replied 2 years ago.

4.7

Expert:  DrRussMD replied 2 years ago.
OK
this is hypothyroid.
anything over 2.5 even in normal individuals is hypothyroid.
Anything over one in treated individuals is not optimal.
You actually could use an increase in your thyroid medicine dose.
OK, so that is an initial answer….
