Hi, I was diagnosed 10 years ago with an underachieve thyroid due to my cholesterol being high. Since then I have also been diagnosed with Ménière's disease and have a low GFR, so now take:
Betahistine 16mg tablets 3 times a day
Ramipril 10mg capsules 1 per day
Levothyroxine sodium 100microgram tablets 1 per day
With the exception of the Ménière's disease and the Betahistine which was prescribed by an ENT, I have only seen my GP. I have asked on a number of occasions why I have both underachieve thyroid and issues with my kidneys, but they seam not to want to look into anything further.
Recently I went to a private doctor as I was having real problems with sleeping, being hot and then very cold, lack of libido and heavy periods. She has identified that I am peri-menopausal and has prescribed:
Utregestan Progesterone 30 capsules 100mg
Although I feel better now, I still sleep a lot - if I can 9 hours per night and have gained weight again over the last 3 years - 10kg.
I don't know if I should argue for further testing as it just seams all small things going wrong and not connected.
