Hello Doctor, Free TSH 5.96, freeT3 2.49, freeT4 0.76. Age 33 years.
Symptoms - weight gain, depression, late periods since second delivery and 2 years back. Do I need thyroid medicine?
Hi, Welcome to icliniq.com.
I would like to know when was this thyroid test done?
This seems to be a very mild thyroid dysfunction.
Does anyone in your family have thyroid problem? I would recommend you to consult an endocrinologist online to go for some more testing (like thyroid antibodies and repeat thyroid function test) and initiate thyroid medication if necessary --> https://www.icliniq.com/ask-a-doctor-online/endocrinologist
