Bit of a back story, since the birth of my son, I have been picking up every single big going. 5 times I have had what they classed previously as strep throat, but turns out was lingual tonsillitis, from which I caught sepsis.
During all of this, they took lots of blood and have told me that I had an under active thyroid;
TSH 3.82 (0.35-3.5)
T4 11 (8.0-21.0)
TSH 4.11 - same references as above
They were going to start me on something but had to hold off as Addenbrooks (where I had been referred for immunology) didn’t want the tests altered with Thyroid medication. I will post those results below in case they are relevant.
I appreciate from other posts that they aren’t testing my full spectrum of thyroid (despite me asking every time) and I am awaiting the 3rd set of results to come in tomorrow afternoon.
I guess my question is, based on the above and the symptoms I have (extreme fatigue, weight gain I can’t shift, sickness and bugs as well as very irregular and heavy periods and excessive sweating) does this all look like Thyroid issues? And would Thyroid issues also make me prone to becoming unwell so often?
Thank you for any help and advice 😊
