Does a thyroid level in the TSH 4.1 to 5.2 range indicate hypothyroidism? Is very dry skin and increase in acne also a symptom?
Possibly: A TSH of 4.1-5.2 is mildly high. Most people with these levels will still have a normal thyroid level (free t4), and have no symptoms. We call that subclinical hypothyroidism. There are, however, some people who are sensitive to even mildly abnormal levels, and have symptoms. Dry skin is a very common complaint, that may or may not be related. Acne is usually associated with high thyroid. ...Read more
Is a deficiency in vitamin d, hight cortisol and prolactin, too much LDL cholesterol a sign of hypothyroid ? Symptoms dry skin, astheny and low libido
Forgive my frankness: Your lack of vitamin d is probably the result of your getting too little in your diet and not getting enough sunlight. A spot cortisol is of little value except as a screen for addison's which i will assume is ruled out. Your high prolactin and low libido in a man with some serious acne like you're being treated for makes me suspect strongly that you have a prolactinoma. ...Read more

Having nausea, fatigue, dry skin, etc. Had thyroid test TSH 4.290& T4 1.15 & ferritin 5, hemoglobin 9.6, vitamin d 11. Would low dose thyroid med help?
Anemia and vitamin: D deficiency. All laboratory results need to be interpreted in the clinical context and the doctor who ordered the tests is usually in the best position to do that. Having said that, you are deficient in iron and vitamin D and likely deficient in other nutrients as well. It is imperative that you see your doctor for a thorough evaluation. In meantime - Have a diet rich in fresh vegetables, fruits, whole grains, low fat milk and milk products, nuts, beans, legumes, lentils and small amounts of lean meats. Avoid saturated fats. Exercise at least 150 minutes/week and increase the intensity of exercise gradually. Do not use tobacco, alcohol, weed or street drugs in any form. Practice safe sex. ...Read more

Classic hypothyroid symptoms, self-treated naturethroid, 2 grain daily, miraculous result. Specialist insisted i reduce to 1.5; bloods ok but tired, weight+ dry skin, constipation, fog, coldness back.
Risky use of thyroid: There is significant risk in self treatment based on symptoms. There are many causes of "fog/coldness". Is it even thyroid? You need blood tests to sort this out. You should not use "pig thyroid extract", but levothyroxine. T4/t3 combinations can make you hyperthyroid easily. Although you may like the "buzz", the cardiac arrhythmias it causes can be deadly. ...Read moreSee 1 more doctor answer
