I have suspicions that I have an under active thyroid, due to being shattered all the time & not being able to lose weight no matter what I try. I do yoga twice a week, Pilates once a week & have a personal trainer 3 times a week who also keeps a check on my food & ive only lost 3lbs in 10 weeks!?
I'm 43 & the doctor put it down to the menopause as I get hot in in bed at night !?
However, she did agree I could have the thyroid blood tests, which she said were normal. However I have this niggling feeling that it's still my thyroid. I'd be really grateful if someone could give me their opinion as to what I do next please.
Not sure which test results are relevant so please let me know if there's others that may help...
Serum TSH level - 3 miu/L
Serum iron level - 20 umol/l
Serum transferrin level - 2.89 g/L
Serum TIBC level - 66 umol/L
Serum vitamin B12 level - 285ng/L
Serum folate level - 3.49ng/ml
Serum ferritin level - 42.4 ng/ml
Thank you so much x
