Tiredness, irregular periods, brittle nails and hair, TSH levels normal. Any medications so as to conceive ?

Hi, I am a 31 year old female and am a little worried about thyroid levels in body.
My report shows TSH level of 3.57
T3 serum 3.27 and T4 1.12
My doctor told me these are normal but I even have thyroid symptoms, I get tired very fast, irregular periods and brittle nails and hair. I am more worried about these coz I want to conceive and from what ever I have searched the apt levels for TSH is under 2 ideally. Do u think I should take any medication for this die changes??

Thanku

Hi,
Thanks for using Healthcaremagic,
Please do not worry about your thyroid levels as they are in normal range. If you have any symptoms the test can be repeated after some time.
Your symptoms could be due to various other disease like Anemia or other hormone imbalance.
Please consult Infertility specialist and Endocrinologist to find out exact cause for your illness and infertility and once cause is detected it can be treated accordingly.
Please do not take any medicine by yourself as it may be harmful so take proper prescription and follow the treatment as advised by your doctor.
There are many causes of inability to conceive certain from your side and some are from your partner side so both should seek medical help.
Hope this helps.
Take care.
Good Luck.

All of my life I have fought weight gain, intolerance to cold, brittle nails, and hair loss, and absence or infrequent menstrual periods. My thyroid (TSH) tests all come back normal. Could I still have hypothyroidism even though the test says my thyroid is normal? I m experiencing more weight gain now that I m in my 60 s even though I walk 45 minutes 4-5 days a week, have cut my food intake in half and lead an active lifestyle.

Hey, Im a 25 year old male. I have been having symptoms of hypothyroidism and a few of hyperthyroidism, such as cold hands and feet, sensitivity to cold, dry skin, I never sweat even when exercising, low heart rate ( 52 BPM resting) but also have social anxiety and nervousness. I recently had a blood test done at a near by lab for cheap. TSH     1.580 Thyroxine (T4)     8.2 ug/dL T3 Uptake     35% Free Thyroxine Index     2.9 Do you see any problems there? I can t go to a doctor because i have no health insurance and have no money. I also read that hypothyroidism can play a part in delayed puberty. I didn t see any development until i was 16/17 and still look very young and feel underdeveloped. Is there anything else that could cause these symptoms? Should I get more blood work done?

Hi, I am having all the symptoms of underactive thyroid but my blood results have been returned 3 times as OK. However, visiting doctor again he examined my neck and told me I had a goiter and would take more bloods, I am feeling really ill and should also mention that I have Rheumatoid Arthritis and see a Rheumatologist twice a year. Could this result in my having an operation and after start to feel better and loose weight? Thank You
