I've been having a weird feeling around my thyroid area for a while now so i decided to have some thyroid hormones and antibodies tested. TSH = 3.49 (ref. range 0.35 - 4.94) Free T4 = 1.16 (ref. range = 0.70 - 1.48) Free T3 = 2.70 (ref. range = 1.71 - 3.71) Anti-TPO = 0.33 (ref. range = 0 - 5.61) Thyroglobulin antibodies = 0.32 (ref. range = 0 - 4.11) Cholesterol = 209 (high) (ref. range = < 200) HDL = 43 (low) (ref. range = > 60) LDL = 160 (high) ref. range = < 100) Triglycerides = 66 (ref. range = < 150) FT3 and FT4 look alright i guess but TSH is elevated according to the new standard. Last time i checked my thyroid hormones TSH came back at 2.2 or so and i didn't have that pressurized sensation in my throat. Also my LDL has increased by approx. 50% in 2 months. I have many hypothyroid related symptoms, would it be a good idea to just do a trial of thyroid meds to see if it makes me feel better?
