Just received my latest blood work. I had surgery for thyroid cancer in June 2015. I still have 1/4 of my thyroid left and I am 75 years old. I am pre-diabetic.
TSH is 5.50. (0.40-4.50)
T3 uptake is 30. (22-35)
T4 (thyroxine) is 8.9. (4.5-12.0) (mcg/dl)
Free T4 index (t7) is 2.7. (1.4-3.8)
Glucose 124. (65-99) mg/do
A1c is 6.6
My questions are:
Still sick to my stomach every day and battling G.E.R.D.s always in pain. GP took me off ometropozle and put me on ranitidine twice a day 150mg. Could it be the Levothyroxine that could be making me sick or the ranitidine. I am on .88 Levo right now. I still have profuse sweating from my head only. I hair is constantly wet which I find discussting! Still quite tired. The hoarseness is still with me, but I am sure it is the reflux. I have very bad joint pain which seems to be getting worse. I do have Rheumatoid and Os. Arthritis. Does this all tie into the thyroid surgery?
I am waiting on the results of the bone scan I just had done. I feel like I am constantly complaining and I can't stand myself!
