I was diagnosed hypothyroid (and tested positive for antibodies) about 3 years ago. For a while I felt OK on Throxione but lately I have been experiencing symptoms again, some days more than others. In particular hair loss, dry skin, afternoon slump, cold, constipation, headaches and emotional. I have also started to have abdominal problems.
I went to the docs and mentioned one strange symptom in particular - tingling in my head. I had TSH, B12, Folate and Glucose tested. I called for results and was told all normal but I don't feel right. After reading things on here I decided to ask for a print of my results in case any were borderline.
TSH 0.92 (0.4 - 5.5) No ref of T4 or T3
B12 582 (190 - 910)
Folate 10.4 (4.6 - 2.0)
Glucose 3 (3.5 - 7.8) This is outside of range but I was told normal
Does anyone have any experience with the Glucose side of things? Should I query it?
I would really like to see a specialist since I feel my GP just fobs me off (even though she has a thyroid problem herself). I can't afford to go private but I do have Bupa and Westfield but they need GP to refer me I think. How do people go about getting second opinions. Does anyone know what I am entitled to?
