Hi. About 20 years ago I had borderline blood test results for both underactive thyroid and type 2 diabetes. I was constantly exhausted, getting dental absesses and generally seemed to catch everything going.I changed doctors in order to get the bloods done, as the previous doctor was ****. Since then, I'm not sure if I adjusted, or things improved. I do still get flu like symptoms ie aching muscles and joints plus exhaustion.
I have a cataract in one eye and a very mild one in the other. I'm 52, so saw my doc to check for diabetes. He did a general blood screen. Liver function, kidneys, diabetes all normal.TSH was 7.7 and cholestrol 7.1. I've been given 25mg of synthetic thyrozine. Is this likely to get my cholestrol down?I have high levels of good cholestrol and only some symptoms of under active thyroid. Fatigue, in spite of not now working in a stressful environment, aching joints and muscle; they are still there,. General muscular weaknessas well at times..I take anti-depressants but mainly to sleep. How far from normal is 7.7?
Worried that if I take thyrozine my pulse will increase I already have high blood pressure
