My cmp blood test says TSH w/reflex to f4 is 4.44 miu/l (normal range is 0.4-4.5). Do I have hypothyroidism? I have sparse eyebrows on the outer third

My cmp blood test says TSH w/reflex to f4 is 4.44 miu/l (normal range is 0.4-4.5). Do I have hypothyroidism? I have sparse eyebrows on the outer third

Not likely.: Tsh in "normal" range so not technically hypothyroid. Some would argue that TSH should actually be lower.

I would repeat this in a few months. If normal again would stop worrying. If abnormal diagnosis is clear.

In any case eyebrow thinning is not likely due to this tsh. ...Read more

Mild pain on side of neck, head, eye twitching, its on and off and feel it in my shoulder. My other muscles were randomly twitching to. I have hypothyroid.
