Can someone help please? My TSH level is 2.9 and my doctor says that is normal, but I have read online normal is .3-3.0 so I am curious if I have borderline hypothryroid?

In brief: Not yet.

Most doctors don't usually consider treating until the number is more above 4.
5 . We do not always follow lab normal ranges and base treatment on symptoms since not everyone is a textbook number. Consider discussing any symptoms you have however with your doctor and possibly an endocrine specialist.
