Hi All, I'm new here and am after some much needed advice.
I have been a type 1 diabetic for 11 years and have recently been feeling very unwell. I suffer on and off with depression and have been taking antidepressants for over 8 years now.
My GP has requested lots of blood tests which I had done yesterday and am currently waiting for the results. One of the things he is testing for is thyroid problems.
My current symptoms (which don't seem to be improving) are - a general low mood, night sweats, excessive tiredness, weight gain, excessive sweating and just feeling unwell. I am also having fertility problems for the past 6 years.
My cholesterol rest came back today of 7.18 which my doctor has said needs to come down asap although as I told him my diet hasn't really changed recently. My full blood count and liver and kidney blood tests have come back ok.
Are there any signs that I should look out for when the thyroid results are in? Would also like to know people's thoughts on my symptoms if possible please.
Any help would be greatly appreciated 😊
