TSH and Hyperthyroidism

I am type2 diabetic and few days back I had my blood checkup. Everything is good till now. hba1c is 5.4 and all the body organs also working fine. I m 29 years old now. Fasting was little too high 105.

But one thing I want to share my TSH is 0.54 while T3 and T4 levels are normal. I am very sensitive to heat and sweat very much on my face. When I say very much then I meant it. I can't tolerate my self locked in a close room as I start to sweat on my forehead and upper lips. Even mocking up the sweat several times it will come back to again in no time. The other people in the room is normal but me I am sweating , same scanrio is for winters too. When I am nervous then I sweat very much i.e while giving interviews , any function where I have to present myself, in presenations. And spicy food don't suit me at all, I will sweat in less than seconds. Even I am talking with my friend I will sweat but less. When I am in emotions like I am too happy or having a big smile , feeling some pain then sweat is common in these scenario.

I just want to say are these symptoms related to hyperthyroidsm? If yes then why my thyroid level is normal? I am unable to find the answer to this question. What can be the problem for this? Any ideas are mostly welcome

Hydration must be a problem ? I once peddled across the UK & had 27lts of water. Cant remember going to toilet. T1 for more than 50yrs.

Hello Xxxy2j - If it is some relief to you, it could very well be your thyroid and in many cases, we do not realise that our thyroid can be affected by our condition. It reacts in many ways and we are rarely aware of it until circumstances point in that direction. If you are able to go to your health care professional and have them point you in the direction of a thyroid specialist, you may find they can point you in the right direction towards either a med or some nutritional advice. First, see if your healthcare professional is able to provide some guidance for you on first instance. In the meantime, please don't be embarrassed about this. You have identified a change in your system and you are dealing with it. Your description and your deduction of the circumstances are very good - you know yourself well. Being aware of our changes such as in this case are annoying, but at the same time, you know your limitations and are aware. Until we can get things fixed, we adjust ourselves to fight the situation and cope in the best way we can. I wish you well in your endeavours and hope you get some useful advice and get better soon at the same time. Hoping this has been helpful to you.

thanks for your valubale advice. I all started in 2008 when I started noticing these changes. At that time I was in college and didn't paid attention to it. Many times I lost my confidence but I regain it again with practising. You know the big thing is that most of the people don;t know about these things,sweating in interview even if you are confident and the other person will assume you are afraid and nervous. I have missed many oppourtunities in life due to this and felt very bad but life teach bus to stand again and fight and later I found myself diabetic(it's totally genetic,runs in my family. I am a gym guy from the starting still have this problem). Life has shown me so many bad phases but I am fighting to it. Let's see what my professinal thyroid specialist is going to say about this.
