44 yo Male, confused on TSH

bcloud3 posted:
Have been treated for depression for 5 yrs and sleep apnea for 2+ yrs. Still have symptoms - fatigue, difficulty waking, poor concentration/memory/focus, lack motivation / very apathetic about everything, 30lb weight gain last 4-5 yrs. Symptoms seem to be getting worse last couple of years despite antidpressant and CPAP. Dr. looked at TSH a couple of years ago, result was 4.7 and he was not concerned then. He is sending me to have TSH and testosterone checked again. I see alot of conflicting info on "normal" TSH range. Given my symptoms should the 4.7 a couple years ago have been of concern? (I really hope it is even higher this time)

thyroid problems are such a monkey to get diagnosed. garrr.

Make sure they run a TSH and a Free T4 - they shouldn't only be looking at the TSH.
