First time on here. I had blood tests (something unrelated) which showed low tsh so had to have further blood tests. I have the results but my hospital appointment is still a couple of months away. I have read loads of stuff and would be interested in other opinions from the people who really know about the disease - the patients!
TSH < 0.05
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODY >1300
Don't know if it's relevant but my folate was below range at 3.3
I have coeliac disease (since 2008) also.
I am a 47 year old female, I walk around 15 miles per day, I am a runner and run upto half marathons in distance. I have not lost any weight, in fact I have put it on. The only symptoms I can say match with hyperthyroidism are that I am hot all the time and my heart races.
I had a sinus operation about 6 years ago and have been on mometasone ever since. I regularly have a sore throat and/or a hoarse voice and have been suspicious that the medication could be causing this.
Any comments will be appreciated.
