Thyroid issues with no symptoms?

During routine blood work I have been told that my TSH level are off. I have been to the endocrinologist and I do not have a single symptom. Anyone have a similar experience?

  • I have symptoms, but my TSH is within normal limits. My antibodies are off, though.

    Everyone is different. We are finding that some people's bodies do not show symptoms until levels are WAY off. Some people have symptoms with only slight fluctuations.

    The new idea is that it may be prudent to treat "symptoms" instead of levels.

    Were your numbers extremely off? Are you hyper or hypo?
