Hello doctor,

I am 30 years old male with no known previous medical illness. I recently had hypothyroidism symptoms, feeling lethargic daily, cold intolerance, easily gaining weight, high cholesterol (my total cholestrol is 6.9), and borderline bradycardia (around 55 to 60 bpm). My TSH level is at a borderline level (13.11 pmol/L).

Kindly help.



Welcome to icliniq.com.

Thank you for your query.

I understand your concern. You must be aware that once you start taking L-thyroxine you have to continue it for a long time. But you have the symptoms of hypothyroidism and your TSH levels are also borderline low. I would suggest you to wait for one month and repeat it. Meanwhile, you should avoid vegetables from the brassica family. If your symptoms still persist and your TSH level comes on the lower side again then you can start l thyroxine at a dose of 25 micrograms.

I hope this has helped you. Thank you.
