First, I am 44 y/o. Last week I had some bloodwork done. I had explained to my Physician that the past 2 years I have had very little energy which has been affecting my quality of life and work peformance.
Today i saw the result and My TSH is high: 5.084. Apparently the Normal Range is .49 - 4.67.
I dont know if 5.084 is just insignificantly high, moderately high or if it categorizes me as having a hypothyroid. And I also dont know if this is the direct cause of some pretty crappy energy levels and some depression the past 2 years. I havent had any other hypothyroid signs such as hair loss, sensitivity to cold, etc. But I have had problems in losing adipose tissue and excercise often, even though I really dont have much energy. I push myself because I am basically a physical fitness nut. I also diet strictly, eating meals every 3 - 3.5 hours tha contain a good solid lean protein, complex carbs (potato, brown rice) and fibrous carbs (salad) etc.
So would it be fair to say that my TSH level indicates a Hypothyroid and is contributing to poor enrgy levels and weight gain?
