I am new to this site and I am desperate to find some answers.
I am almost 42 years old and am female.
I am 'borderline' hypothyroid according to my GP.
I have type 2 diabetes, which is not very well controlled despite me taking an injection of 1.2 of Victoza every morning.
I eat a healthy diabetic diet and I am still unable to keep my bloods under 10. The diabetic consultant will not put me on insulin as it will probably make me gain weight and she wants me to lose weight as this will help my blood sugar controls. My bloods go up after eating almost anything which in turn makes me fall asleep.
I also have Crohns disease. I have had lots of blood tests done recently however I do not know how to interpret the results.
I am grossly over weight. I belong to a slimming group and eat very little due to taking Victoza as it reduces your appetite, however I rarely lose any weight. I have very little body hair and I have lost the outer third of my eyebrows. I have terrible night sweats (I'm not menopausal according to my GP). My maternal grandmother and aunt also have thyroid issues. My other maternal aunt is also 'borderline' hypothyroid.
I am now not sure what else to write however please feel free to guide me in the right direction as I feel as though I am going round in circles!
Any help or advice would be very welcomed as sometimes I fell desperate! I also have depression
