More precisely:
I´m a woman, 56. I´m not with overweight right now,
my "Thyroid Cascading reflex" exam I have:
0.01 L Reference Range 0.40 -4.50 mIU/L
T4/FREE Refrence Range 0.8-1.8 ng/dL

Looks like it´s consistent with primary hyperthyroidism.
I have other symptons: I feel tired, heavy, less flexible, overnight miccion urgency, head ache, back pain, joint pains, and more...
I´m a little worry about the medicatyions for this kind of problems...
Please, advice!
Don't be afraid to take the hyperthyroid medication.

You really should treat it. Untreated it can cause some serious problems.

I used propylthiouracil also known as PTU to treat mine and have heard that there are less side effects then the other choice.

start the medication and get to feeling better!

The lower the TSH number is the MORE hyper you are.

Its kind of backwards.
