Sorry if this is in the wrong place - wasnt sure if it was a thyroid or b12/PA thing and you only get one option. So went with thyroid as thats usually blamed for EVERYTHING by my Doctor!
So recently I noticed that my water intake was drastically increased for the last 2 months or so, I have gone from averaging 6/7 drinks a day or even less. To way over 11/13 glasses of water a day!
So at my recent thyroid blood works, I asked my GP if he would consider checking this out - tbh was worried it might be diabetes- and he added kidney function etc.
It came back satisfactory but some of the numers are falling in the low end of the ref range and 1 near high end.
I've never had this on my previous blood tests so have absolutely NO idea what any of the serums mean or what they do! So any advice would be very gratefully appreciated.
