I recently had a full blood panel and among the things I noticed is my TSH is down 0.04 points from the last time it was tested in 2000: from 0.71 to 0.67.
Now, I feel my thyroid is sluggish, but since it falls within “normal” ranges, by doctors just say, “Your thyroid’s fine.” But I have a family history on hypothyroidism maternal and paternal.
My question: How do I get my docs to take seriously my feeling that my thyroid ain’t quite making the grade? And is a 0.04 point drop over two years a significant change?
Thanks to all who respond.
