How can I get treated for subclinical hypothyroidism if labtests always show within normal values(near limits, but still w/symptoms)?Doc won't treat it
Maybe not hypo: If the tests (including tsh) are normal, then you probably do not have hypothyroidism. That is not to deny your symptoms. Your doctor likely understands that your symptoms are real.

None: True subclinical hypothyroidism should have no symptoms because the free hormone levels are normal. It is only the TSH that is elevated. I think of this as the body is having to work a little harder to produce appropriate amounts of thyroid hormone (thus needing more TSH to meet those needs). ...Read more
I have subclinical hypothyroidism TSH9.90 and FT4 and FT3 in the middle normal range should i be treated? i am 63
After taking Armour Thyroid for 6 months at 120mg/day for borderline subclinical hypothyroidism, would it likely be safe to stop cold turkey?

Hypothyroidism: The proper way to treat hypothyroidism is to administer the correct amount of thyroid replacement to bring the tsh to normal range.

Why are not all doctors familiar with subclinical hypothyroidism... When you have all the symptoms but tests are in normal range. Its so common!
Not real: Symptoms of low thyroid are extremely common in the population. Most people with these symptoms have no thyroid problem. When you say that normal is not normal, it means that there are no normal people in the world. Treating a normal person with a medication (including thyroid) that is not indicated is unethical, against the hippocratic oath, and outright dangerous. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
