Hi

What is your question exactly?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I'm wondering if I have a thyroid problem as all my symptoms point to this but a blood test 6 months ago did not. My symptoms have gotten progressively worse esp in the last 3 months.

How long till I get a response?
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 11 months ago.

What was the TSH on your thyroid function test.

The exact value?

Customer: replied 11 months ago.
I have no idea the doctor never told me? Just said it looks ok.
Expert:  DrRussMD replied 11 months ago.

OK.

that is not good enough.

Labs and most doctors say up to 4.5 is OK.

But, there are newer guidelines.

Over 2.5 can be considered hypothyroid.

You need to check.

Your symptoms more typically fit chronic fatigue.

However, hypothyroid can contribute.

Check the exact values.
