I've been seeing a gp at my practice for a few months now with hypothyroid symptoms. I have had all the bloods done, all normal (b12, vit d, ferritin etc all well within normal range)
tsh 2.65 (0.35 - 4.5)
FT4 12 (12 - 22)
FT3 3.9 (3.1 - 6.9)
I asked to be referred to an endo as gp is only willing to refer to cfs clinic but the endo refused the referral because bloods are within range. They simply suggested a 9am cortisol test to check for addison's, wanting the result to be over 400. I had the result today (saw a different gp as well) and it's only 359 so he is writing back to the endo. In the meantime I have to do a 24hr urine test and also have tsh and FT4 tested again, plus a coeliac screen.
I was wondering if anyone has hypothyroidism AND adrenal insufficiency - can they go hand in hand? And is it possible to have adrenal insufficiency and still gain weight, as I have gained a stone in recent months despite following slimming world. Every link I've seen suggests weight loss as a given. It's all so confusing, I just want to feel better
