Hi everyone, I am amazed to see so many people with similar issues to me, I'm hoping someone may have some experience they can share with me.
I was diagnosed with an overactive thyroid in 2012 and given a prescription of Carbimazole. My levels reached normal ranges and I stopped the meds but haven't felt normal since. I have consistently had low albumin levels, low iron and low folic levels. My energy levels are low, I get shaky and have heart palpitations and headaches constantly. My ankles are so swollen now that I developed plantar fasciatis and had to stop running which I found helpful for energy levels.
My last results were TSH 0.1 and free T4 of 4.3 so my doctor insisted I must be fine. I've read the book by Dr Peatfield and am even more confused now - does this result mean hypothyroid? Should I follow his advice for supplements etc? Any shared experience or advice would be greatly appreaciated.
