Sorry in advance for the long post
For about 6 years Now I have been experience symptoms on and off of an overactive thyroid and each time I go to the GP i get told oh it could be an overactive thyroid but the test results come back as normal the previous TSH Level (the only result i have) was 2.5 however I recently got private test results done with the following results. These are still within the normal ranges apparently (with the exception of the Low Vitamin D and Folic Acid) however reading through various things on a number of different websites I am not sure what my next step is, theres various information that says that if any thyroid antibodies are detected then the rest of the results should be ignored but then there is the opposite. All I Know is I can't take much more of this.
Symptoms I have experience include (amongst others)
difficulty in sleeping
increased thirst and urination
Heat Sensitivity I can be too hot one moment and too cold the next
I've got a slight twitch/tremor in my hand that is sometimes noticeable
Its hard to tell whenever or not I have a Goiter as I do have quite a big adam's apple (or what i think is a big adam's apple i could be mistaking this for a Goiter).
Thyroid disorder does run in the family (both overactive and underactive) alongside graves.
Most Recent Thyroid Test (Private) results are:
TSH - 1.35 mIU/L
Free Thyroxine - 16.25 pmol/L
Total Thyroxine (T4) 88.1 mol
Free T3 5.69 pmol/l
THYROGLOBULIN ANTIBODY 17.580 IU/mL
THYROID PEROXIDASE ANTIBODIES 7.14 IU/mL
VITAMIN B12 148.7 pmol/L
FOLATE (SERUM) 1.52 ug/L
25 OH VITAMIN D 12.86 nmol/L
I am due back at the doctors at the end of the week and I just want to be a bit firmer/clearer as to what my next steps will be I originally went just before christmas to discuss a very noticeable increase in thirst and urination and appetite and was tested for Diabetes but this was normal but he did once again say it could be my thyroid and this is a follow up appointment.
I am 28 Male no real health issues with the exception of the above. Normal Weight/ Healthy BMI etc
