Hi, I am just wondering if i could have some help on my next course of action.
I have a family history of thyroid issues (mum, grandma and aunt all on one side of the family have hypothyroidism and my aunts(the one just mentioned) daughter has hyperthyroidism)
for a while now been having symptoms of thyroid issues (exhaustion, slowing mental functions, slowing reactions, slowing digestive functions, scalloped tongue, generally feel like im constantly in slow motion) and my mum said to get my thyroid tested. i had it done about 5 years ago and got told that everything was normal. at the time didnt think to ask for the actual results in figures and i am guessing only TSH was tested.
Had another test done this past week (amongst other tests due to recently being diagnosed with hypertension) and my TSH levels came back at 1.1. TSH was the only levels to be tested.
What can i do now? I really can't go on feeling like this. Can i request a more in depth test to be done on my thyroid (T4 and T3 levels for one)
also have to have further tests on my kidneys due to a raised level of microalbumin in my urine (possible indication of kidney damage) could this also affect my thyroid results?
sorry for the long post!
