This is my first post here, was advised to visit from a fellow member of the Diabetes UK forum.
So I'm a type 1 diabetic (around 3.5 years) and have been feeling pretty crap for a good few months now. Symptoms are constant fatigue, muscle and joint aches, lack of interest, foggy head and generally acting vacant, feeling cold, regularly unwell (sniffles, etc), sometimes weird palpitation like feeling in my chest.
Expressed concerns of fatigue to my GP in May and he ran tests for anemia and checks of my thyroid. I had no further contact from my GP so as I understood, "no news is good news".
I visited my GP this morning for an absolutely unrelated issue (and because I'm still feeling tired) asked for my results. Anemia results were absolutely fine, thyroid ones were a slightly different story... Although she said everything was fine and in range.
T4 result: 11
T4 range: (10-25)
TSH result: 3.72
TSH range: (0.55-4.78)
I'd really appreciate feedback on my results and advice regarding my next course of action? I'm feeling pretty bad just now and from everything I've read, it seems like I may have an issue with my thyroid and that I should chase this up.
Thanks a lot in advance guys,
