I’ve just posted this on the thyroid website but thought I’d say hello on here too
Just wanted to hear from people who also have diabetes along with hypothyroidism and PCOS
Diagnosed very hypothyroid 2017 I take 20 Liothyronine and 125 thyroxine I have the dio2 gene variant also take b complex vitamin d magnesium selenium
Follow a keto diet as best as I can but I’ve gained 4 stone since being diagnosed hypo
Also have PCOS too
I haven’t felt well for 3 years on and off but thought it was my thyroid then they diagnosed PCOS too
Symptoms came back worse in April this year dizzy no energy massive weight gain periods stopped and haven’t restarted Stretch marks on tummy very bad upper abdominal bloating I seriously look 9 months pregnant sweating headaches pain in legs back ache constipation no motivation just feel awful struggle to get a deep breath cannot stand the heat ..
Checked for Cushings was normal
Bloods showed nothing Had all done including all vitamins etc other than dio2 gene had hba1c fine in April was 38 and also beginning of August was 41 So not even pre diabetic
Had a fasting blood glucose last week this was 8.8 and my hba1c had gone to 46
I’ve got to now have a glucose tolerance test as they think I’m diabetic I didn’t think it could come on that quick?
Can anyone relate to any of the above does anyone have all 3 conditions
I feel like I’m falling apart at 42!
