None: True subclinical hypothyroidism should have no symptoms because the free hormone levels are normal. It is only the TSH that is elevated.

If you had hypothyroidism (not subclinical) i would be cautious about this as you can become ill stopping thyroid hormone that your body needs (called myxedema). ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
