I had good memory power on my schooldays but now I (23, male) feel low.My thyroid level is T3 - 138 T4 - 9.8 TSH - 5.17 And H.B - 15.4 mg
Hello T 3 (60-181 ng/dL) T 4 ( 4.5 -10.9 microg/dL) TSH 0.5 -4.7 mu/L , while in your case it is 5.17 mu/L. This is high , so this may be the reason of your weakness . Consult an endocrinologist and get his opinion . Because this is a prescription medicine ( for this ). Your hemoglobin level is within normal range .
