Hello you have a lot of conditions as well as hyperthyroidism. I'm not sure particularly what advice you want as this forum is for thyroid issues anything else people bring up and get help/advice on is just by luck.

I noticed you have posted similar questions before. However one things is that you have never posted blood test results and ranges. As this is an online forum we can't see you to see how you look, and even if we could without test results and ranges we can't guide you in the right direction.

It is worth going to your doctor and asking for a copy of your test results and their ranges. Then posting them on forums when you are ask questions or in response to replies you should get more useful advice.

If you are challenged by the receptionist at your GP surgery when you ask for your test results, you simply say you want them for your own records and it is your legal right under the Data Protection Act 1998.

They can charge you £10 for electronic copies but most normally give you them free or a few pence after 3-5 days. If they want to charge you that amount or are difficult in any other way come back here and post a new thread as posters on here who have encountered difficult receptionists can tell you how they dealt with their practice.

Hi Peggy, are you hypo or hyper. I have Graves' disease which is the hyper one. I also have osteoporosis. I think the over active thyroid accelerates everything. Mine has been destroyed with radioactive iodine. I also think your heart is linked to thyroid issues. I'm not a medical person by any means but I do know that when I first had my thyroid destroyed before I was given any medication that my heart rate was slow. Mine was also slow on thyroxine. Have you asked at the hospital as the thyroid controls your metabolism and regulates all your heart rate blood pressure and all that stuff. I didn't start to feel well until I was put into T3. I hope that someone can post something helpful for you. :-)

Hi Ruby red ,

Thank you for information I'm hypo , along with every thing else I forgot to mention I chronic kidney disease stage 4 I'm very lucky I suppose I'm checked at the hospital every 3/6 months & see my GP every month the district nurse calls in once a month. Im78 & have had heart trouble since I was in my 40s ckd Over 4 years .

I take thyroxine & have often mentioned my thyroid. ? But they just say I'm stable regarding all my ailments ,to be fair I get good treatment but don't feel I am ? apologies for the rant.

Keep well

Peggy

I have no idea whether this is anything which might help - I have no medical training. But I had dreadful heart pain when I was desperately short of iron. I believe that fixing my iron shortage and lots of my other nutrient deficiencies helped too. It wasn't quick, but it made a massive difference to my health.

If you can start off by getting tests done for iron/ferritin, folate, vitamin B12, vitamin D, and then posting the results and reference ranges in a new post, we can give you feedback on the results.

The way doctors in the UK react to low levels of minerals and vitamins is a scandal, in my view. Getting levels to optimal can fix or improve loads of things, but doctors react as if they are of no importance at all.

By the way, you have a perfect right to ask questions on this forum. You don't have to apologise for doing so. :)

Yes I agree you have right to ask all sorts of questions, many people do. There may be a thyroid condition but it often accompanies other ailments too.
