You are extremely under medicated

Make an urgent appointment to see a different GP, if yours is unhelpful

Here is my reply to similar earlier today


You almost certainly have extremely low vitamin levels

Have you had vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12 tested?

If not ask to be tested ASAP

Presumably you have high thyroid antibodies?

This is Hashimoto's also called autoimmune thyroid disease

Thank you I have TPO antibodies of 1400 (<34) and TG antibodies 266.3 (<115) so symptom of sweating is not hyperthyroidism? Also palpitations and fast heart rate and sugar cravings I had vitamins tested last month


Post your vitamin results

Palpitations can be due to under medication

You have Hashimoto's.

Ask GP to do coeliac blood test before changing to strictly gluten free diet.


Ok thank you I will do this now
