I am finding this forum really interesting as I was told I had Subclinical Hypothyroidism in August last year following blood tests. They tested again in January with similar results. My TSH was 6.5 and Free T4 was 14.3.
My ferritin at 29, seemed low and as I run regularly I started taking Ferroglobin liquid.
Anyway, I asked my new gp for more advise on my thyroid last week - I have suffered with thinning hair for years, and over the last 8 months or so feel my immune system is not what it should be (a couple of viruses have been really hard to shake off). He said we could do with more tests and has referred me to Endocrinology. Hopefully this is a positive first step? Can hypothyroidism affect your immune system? And do my levels sound like I would benefit from medication?
Also, any other runners out there with low thyroid problems? I would hate not to be able to run and at 52, did my first half marathon in March! So, when I'm well - I'm well!
Thanks in advance for any thoughts.
