Hello lovely people!
Well, it’s been a good long while since I posted - but I still follow from afar!
I’ve been so stable and energetic for the last 6 months or so. I’ve followed a clean lower calorie diet and lost nearly 2 stone. I don’t believe I’m over medicated as it’s been such slow, steady weightloss and my partner (on same diet) has managed to lose more than me when in the past I’ve always been able to lose weight far faster.
Anyway, the last few weeks I’ve started to feel a bit crap again. I went for a blood test yesterday and am waiting for the results. I know that I should just wait to see what the GP says but generally find that the more info I have the better I can fight my corner!
I’m colder than everyone round me, a bit grey again, blooming tired all the time and very unable to rationalise and far too emotional🤦🏼♀️. I feel jittery and worried and tearful. No palpitations.
Something tells me I may be over medicated at this point but I feel my symptoms are a right mix. My last results showed TSH as 0.01 and my FT4 was just over 21. I think my absorption has improved over the last few months. In general I seem to function best when my TSH is so low and I’ve felt amazing since May.
Weightloss, healthier lifestyle = thyroid function better or worse? 🤔
I’ve never had my full thyroid bloods done privately as I’ve been ok on the levo and wanted to give the levo a chance. I’m guessing my GP results won’t shed much light but my question is, assuming I get private testing done, does this then carry any weight for GP?
If you’re still reading this essay then thank you (and sorry!) ... I’m just wondering if anyone else has had this experience after being so stable for so long! X
