New Thyroid Results
 
All of my previous thyroid tests have been normal but I keep gaining weight, cold all the time, nodules on the thyroid etc. GP agreed to run a TSH (I Know she should have done the whole series but wouldn't) and it is significantly higher then it was before but still in normal range. With 5 nodules and this TSH, do you think it's time for treatment? Thanks for any suggestions.

I also seem to be getting many auto immune disorders - I am now on restasis for dry eye due to sjorgrens/I have Primary Biliary Cirrhosis/thyroid nodules. Every time I turn around it's something else. Right now I have a rash on my arms and legs and have no clue what it's from - heat? weight gain? Only thing different is the restasis. Restasis is a cyclosporine which is an immosuppressive so I am not real happy taking it but it beats corneal abrasions.

Here are my TSH results since 2011 Any help would be appreciated!! Thanks

2011 = 1.57
2011= 1.18
2012 = 1.352
Current 2013= 2.355

Since reading on Dr Davis hearts can blog on the benefits of 3-4 drops of Lugols iodine in water daily .(everyone is different) I have had less issues with cold feet
And other thyroid side effects.
