Investigations to be done:
Anti-TPO (anti-thyroid peroxidase), free T4 (free thyroxine) and TSH (thyroid stimulating hormone) should be repeated six weeks after the last test was done.Differential diagnosis:
1. Hypothyroidism due to medicationsProbable diagnosis:
2. Hashimoto's thyroiditis (autoimmune disorder result in hypothyroidism).
3. Subclinical hypothyroidism.
Subclinical hypothyroidism.Treatment plan:
You would be treated with thyroid hormone only if your anti-TPO antibodies are positive. Otherwise, I would not suggest treatment with any medications yet. Thyroid hormone if used inappropriately could be harmful to health.Regarding follow up:
Please share your detailed history such as constipation, excessive sleepiness, weight gain, feeling cold or very lethargic, any medication, etc., if any in the follow up.
