Hi, Thanks for using HCM.

Since your TSH is normal and you have symptoms of hyputhyroidism get done complete thyroid profile once and also FBS, PPBS and lipid profile. Do regular outdoor exercises, drink plenty of fluid and dieting. Consult your doctor for examination and management.
Hope I answered your question. Feel free to ask me if you have any further queries.
Wish you good health. Take care.
