In 2008 I had the following lab values:
TSH 7.65 (normal range = 0.5-4.3)
T4 13.2 (normal range = 4.5-12.4)
T3 180 (normal)
T3 Uptake 22% (normal)
Free T4 Index 2.9 (normal)
I was not informed that there was anything abnormal with these values (I go to a student health clinic at my college that tends to be sub-par care). Lately I've been feeling extremely fatigued with headaches, muscle weakness, and very brittle fingernails. I went back and discussed this with a nurse practioner (again at the student health center) and she ordered a new TSH...which came back normal at 3.18. She apparently did not order a T4 so I don't have that value.
I just don't know if I should continue pursuing this or if I should just let it be. My grandfather has Graves' disease and had his thyroid mostly removed. But with a normal TSH value it seems like there's no reason to keep pushing this. What would you do?
