Dear XXXXXXX,
Your thyroid reports are indeed suggestive of mild form of hypothyroidism known as subclinical hypothyroidism. Subclinical hypothyroidism is usually not associated with any major symptoms. So as you have noted your symptoms are unrelated to thyroid problem. As for your thyroid report is concerned you need to repeat the test from a more reliable lab because we see discordant reports from different labs on a day to day basis. If the second report confirms the report you've got then the diagnosis is confirmed. In subclinical hypothyroidism, there are 2 criteria to initiate treatment- 1st the presence of goitre (enlarged thyoid gland) and second positive TPO antibodies. We usually treat hypothyroidism if these criteria re met because treatment of hypothyroidism is life long thyoid hormone replacement. Even if we treat you there wont be any symptomatic improvement because the symptoms you are suffering from are unrelated to thyroid problem -they have to taken as a separate problem and treated accordingly.
So my advice to you -
1. Get T3, T4, TSH, TPO antibody levels from a second lab.
2. Consult your family doctor for the symptoms you are ahving and request evaluation and treatment for them.
3. Get back to me with the repeat thyroid test.
Hope your doubts are cleared.
