I'm a 25 year old woman from Scotland and was diagnosed 'borderline hyperthyroid' last April after I'd felt unwell, racing heart, bad skin, exhaustion etc for months. Doctors were very unhelpful, said they'd give me carbimazole and beta blockers which I refused at first and went to see a natural practitioner / herbalist for a different take on it. She advised I give up caffeinated tea, coffee etc for the heart rate which worked and a few other things- iron & magnesium supplements, no processed bread etc.
These things have helped a small bit in parts but are difficult with my lifestyle- I'm a full time musician and life on your means I can't be fussy when it comes to food sometimes!
The last few months the Ive been feeling really unwell, exhausted, bad skin, racing heart etc and the doctor still says I'm 'borderline hyperthyroid' but I feel much more than that! My doctor said that the drugs are harsh and isn't keen on giving me those. He asked if I was planning on having children at any point and that yhry are not good for that. I have an appointment tomorrow with the endo to discuss options but there's talk of an op and radio iodine and I just wonder based on my description and my bloods (below) what more experienced people think might be a good option for me?
Another thing o should add, I havent lost any weight... I've put on a bit!
I've attached my blood and i'd be so grateful for an explanation as to what my levels mean and how to treat them from people not so new to this as me!
Thank you in advance!
