  • Hi I was like that even when my thyroid controlled. I thought it was thyroid and heart but turned out to be my diabetes, then undiagnosed. So, make sure you have the two separate blood tests for Diabetes, glucose and the better Hb 1ac, Also make sure you have had a test for free T3 with the TSH and T4 as a lot of people ( and me ) found that the T3 accounts for a lot of the thyroid symptoms especially weight. T3 often lowers the TSH. A lot of us on treatment find the FT3 needs to be nearly at the top of range. Also, you do not mention your age ( understandably!) but if older, my friends all call it a faulty thermostat ! I hope this gives you some ideas. My endo says that T4 takes at least a month to reach optimum level.

  • Hi Remember to click to reply, anyway I found it. Another thing I forget around and post menopause thyroid disease is very common.

    Best wishes,
