Do I need thyroid medication? ( Lab Results Included )

Thread starter #1
On two different blood test my TSH was over 5.4 so I scheduled an appointment with my GP. Kinda afraid he’s not knowledgable on the subject, or maybe he is. But I was wondering if anyone wants to give their input so that maybe I go to the doctor better informed.

  • Based on my results, should I be on thyroid medication?
  • If so, how much dosage should I start with?
  • Is there a certain brand medicine I should use?

Btw, I was also positive for too much TPO antibodies (possible hashimoto’s). And my TSH has been increasing gradually for several years now. I’ve attached my T3/T4 lab results.
