Borderline Hypo?

From: katherinez - 7 years 33 weeks ago

I can check off almost everything on the symptom list for hypothyroidism. My mother has been taking meds for hypo for more than 40 years. My levels:

TSH 3.35
T4 Free 1.1

I plan to ask for an antibodies test. A few months ago I found out I was anemic and have been taking iron, which improved my TSH, which WAS 7.06 (again, now is 3.35 on iron). Not sure if hypothyroidism can cause anemia, or if my problems are from anemia... still working it out.

I also have idiopathic gastroparesis, which makes my calorie intake sometimes as low as 800 per day but I try to get 1500 a day.

Has anyone else been on the boarderline like me? I am so tired of all these symptoms!! Thanks!!!
