You always have so much knowledge and good advice!
I am not (yet) diagnosed but have a lot of awful symptoms. I have just contacted my GP to have a follow-up consultation - I had first round of blood tests done in December. That time shoved:
TSH 1.55 (0.25-5)
T4 Free 13.67 (9-20)
T3 Free 3.67 (4-8.3)
Ferritin 36.81 (25-280)
cholesterol Total 3.85 (<5.20)
Cholesterol HDL 0.69 (1.04-1.56)
Cholesterol LDL 2.74 (<2.59)
I was sent home with iron tablets and multi vitamins and told to come back in 3 months. (other vitamins wasn't checked).
Only my Free T3 was out of range and not something she seemed to pay much attention to.
I just went through my results again and noticed my HbA1c was high but my random glucose blood was within limits:
HbA1c 6.7 (<6.5%)
Random blood glucose 4.82 (<7.0mmol)
Is there a connection with Hypo and diabetes?
I also have chronic diarrhoea.
I get dizzy or heart palpitations when eating.
I have other symptoms of which the tiredness/fatigue is the worst. puffiness/water retention. Sore breasts (like as if i was breastfeeding - only lasts for a few minutes then goes). flatulence. bloatedness. weight gain despite not eating much. muscle pain (especially thighs and upper arms). nausea. short of breath. forgetting things - like when/where to pick my children. lack of concentration. hoarse voice etc etc...
Appreciate your comments
have a good day.
