Dear Dr. Roach: I am an 82-year-old woman in good health. I recently had labwork that showed my TSH level is 6.14. I was told that I would need thyroid medicine because eventually I would feel tired and cold all the time. I do not have either of these symptoms. Im usually warm when others say they are cold. I wake up at 6:30 and am ready for the day. Do I have an underactive thyroid? I dont think so. R.K.
Answer: I dont think you have an underactive thyroid either.
