For the past few months, I have been feeling really exhausted (even after a good nights sleep) and sensitive to cold. My nutritionist said that my symptoms sound like an under active thyroid and asked me to carry out the Barnes Basal Temperature test. I carried out this test three mornings in a row and my temperature was below the normal range every morning. I tested under my tongue and under my armpit.
I also got a TSH and T4 Free blood test. My TSH was 2.33 and my T4 Free was 18.9. I was reading that if the TSH is over 2, this could indicate an under active thyroid but my doctor said that my results were normal.
I am a 26 year old male, quiet fit and have a really healthy diet. I don't smoke or drink much alcohol. I have had high levels of Candida for the past few months, over 90% of which is gone now after being on an anti-candida diet. Other than that, I have no major medical history. I have had a lot of other bloods test done recently such as cortisol levels, etc, and everything was fine.
Any help or suggestions would be greatly appreciated, thanks!
