I have been seeing a nutrionist to help me with hormonal imbalance (post menopausal) and IBS symptoms.
Six months ago, on her advice, I changed my diet to cut out tea, coffee, wheat, sugar and dairy. I am still feeling very tired. Other symptoms include thinning hair, dry eyes, dry cuticles. I also read on FB that if you have feint or no half moons in your nails that is a sign of underachieve thyroid. I have very feint or nonexistent half moons. I recently had a blood test for thyroid function and the results were:
Ferritin level: 47 ug/L[11.0-336.0]
TSH level: 1.44 mlU/L [0.34 0 5.6]
Free T4 level: 11.50 pmol/L [7.5 -21.1]
My GP said all my results were normal but my nutritionist wants to see where I am on the scale. Do the above results mean I am bordering on hypothyroidism or completely normal?
If they are normal, what is the explanation for my extreme tiredness and the other symptoms above?
Thanks for any advice!
