Subclinical Hypothyroidism Diet

High TSH but with: Normal thyroid levels. It "usually" entails a symptom free state but if the cause is autoimmune in nature, there might be some signs or symptoms. The thyroid profile will need to be monitored regardless.See 2 more doctor answers
Sometimes: If it is truly subclinical, meaning that there are no associated symptoms or signs of too little thyroid hormone, a doctor may choose to just watch, and recheck hormone levels in a few months.

I am suffering from subclinical hypothyroidism and also low ferritin.....suggest me to control both by taking natural foods?
Better options: "Natural"foods are not an easy answer. What is your idea of "natural" foods? Do you consider eating thyroid gland of cows or pigs natural?

There is no virtue in not taking effective medication. Please consult your doctor for the medications.

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.See 1 more doctor answer

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. But the sx of hypothyroidism are common to many conditions, and giving you thyroid hormone will not help.
Depends: Treatment should be discussed with your doctor. Depending on your age and cause of your hypothyroidism, it may make sense to treat it. For example, if you are young and have hashimoto's (which equates to a high likelihood of progressing) treatment typically makes sense.

After taking Armour Thyroid for 6 months at 120mg/day for borderline subclinical hypothyroidism, would it likely be safe to stop cold turkey?
Check with md: It should not be a problem, but at that dose I would go a bit slow instead of stopping altogether at once to make sure your own thyroid "wakes up" and starts to produce thyroid hormone. 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).See 1 more doctor answer
My 7months baby has subclinical hypothyroidism & always seems so restless and difficult to fall asleep. Is there any relationship between them?
Hypothyroid infant: Thyroid dysfunction can be associated with sleep disturbance usually hyperthyroidism/ too much thyroid replacement.
