I've been looking over the results of my latest blood tests and I found something kind of shocking. I had a tsh result of 2.7, which is right in the mid range, but by chance I discovered that since 2003 the recommendations have been that tsh over 3 is considered hypothyroid and the over 2.5 is "subclinical" and should be treated if someone had symptoms but if someone is trying to get pregnant then tsh should be no more than 2. I looked up the issues that are associated with hypothyroid, including poor lh response (I have that) low progesterone (I have that too) low bbt (I have that, average pre o temps are in the low 96s, average post o temps are in the low 97s) and is associated with low birth weight and pre eclampsia (true for both of those). But now I'm worried that I won't convince a doctor to treat me since this is controversial and my numbers so far aren't *that* high.
