A recent blood test indicate a rise in some related thyroid

Customer Question

A recent blood test indicate a rise in some related thyroid reading. Two of my GPs didn't consider the readings significant enough to warrant treatment despite the fact that I was experiencing the following symptoms:
Weight loss (3 stone in six months)
increased frequency of bowel movements
sleep disturbances
numb ring and little fingers

Hi and sorry for the delay. What were your thyroid function readings? Have you had any other tests related to these symptoms?
