Hey hey, A few questions about hypothyroidism here: Most recent bloodwork shows my TSH highish, and my T3 and T4 on the lower side of acceptable: TSH:7.1 mIU/L ( 0.4-4 ) T3 (Free):3.7 pmol/L ( 2.5-6 ) Free T4:12.3 pmol/L ( 10-24 ) This is the first bloodtest I've had in ages, due to being housebound for a few years, so I don't have anything relevant to compare this with. My doctor says we will just monitor this every six weeks, as much of the time this is just the body's natural rhythms. She said that if my TSH goes over 12, then some meds - Thyroxine, I think it was - may help. Anyway, I'm about to start learning a bit more about hypothyroidism, but before I get into it, I thought I might just ask on this forum... suppose I am a bit hypothyroid: What could be the underlying reason, and how to fix it? Any herbs/supplements/foods/etc that might help? Any suggested readings? Thanks in advance, your comments would be much appreciated.
