Mid-Sixties Gent, not yet retired.
a science /engineering graduate.
Trying to keep healthy by updating myself about all those things that seem to be going wrong lately.
Suspected diabetes, widespread joint aches and pains ,stiffness. etc. raised liver enzyme (ALT) .
TSH 4.3 currently, Was 4.1 3 years ago. ( Lab range 0.3 to 5.5 )
OTHER than that , I'm still not too bad. ...! , in general health. It is the joint pains that really bother me , but they are not swollen joints. I've been to Docs about joints several times, seen rheumatologist etc etc. Nothing definative, except I was vit D deficient, and sorted that out a couple of years ago. But no big change in joint pain. ( a little maybe - I seem to be just a bit more flexible )
I was wondering if that level of TSH could be indicative of a developing problem ? Could there be something to do with thyroid which may be causing my problem with joints. Doc says level is normal.
I have quite a few other blood test results, which I could post if helpful.
I'd appreciate any comment . T I A .
