I am a 29 year old type 1 diabetic. For the last couple of months I have been feeling rubbish, absolutely exhausted, falling asleep, struggling with memory and concentration at work, hair thinning and pins and needles, and my skin is a mess (though not dry just masses of spots all of a sudden!). I went to my GP who begrudgingly checked my thyroid and TSH came back 5.7 (range 0.4-4.9) and T4 was around 13 (range 12-20). This was about 6 weeks ago. GP said it was fine, maybe retest in a few months. Then I saw my endo for a diabetes appointment and mentioned tiredness, he said the TSH had gone up from last years test and he felt it could be start of hashimotos as I already have 1 autoimmune condition, I have another appointment with him at start of July and he wants repeat bloods for that including antibodies. But being nosy and still not feeling great thought I'd try the myrios home test last week. I took the test last thing at night (didn't know to do it first thing) and results came back with TSH of 11.7 (0.35-4.30) and t4 of 14 (12-22). I don't know if it's worth going back to GP now with these results as I still feel rubbish but am a bit embarrassed I did a home test! Or should I just wait it out and see what results are in July? Do you think GP would treat if my TSH is now 11.7?
