ok i did a search and no results came out, so i started a thread.
i had my medical review last dec, and it was my first 1 in 2 years.
as mentioned in the exercising thread, my LDL is just a wee bit above the reference range and everything else was about the same as per my last report except for my Thyroid Profile (TSH, Free T4), and Bone & Joint Profile (Calcium, Phosphate).
The doc recommended me to do a re-test in 3 months time, which i did last week.
The Calcium and Phosphate profile returned to normal, but my Thyroid profile remained slightly elevated.
TSH - ref range 0.27 - 4.20 mIO/L
30 Nov 2017 - 1.66 - it's ok
28 Mar 2018 - 2.10 - it went up although still within normal range
Free T4 - ref range 12.0 - 22.0 pmol/L
30 Nov 2017 - 25.1 - slightly elevated
28 Mar 2018 - 25.2 - it went up very slightly
in these 3 months, or for the past 2 years in fact, there were no changes to my dietary habits. ok maybe from very very low carb the past years to only low carb last year where i enjoy my occasional rice, noodles etc.. other than that, very little changes to my lifestyle. exercise is fairly the same.
doctor said it could be due to my autoimmune system attacking myself, and something else which i can't remember.
she asked me if i'm experiencing rapid weight loss, dizziness, feeling "hyper", keep falling sick.. which i don't which is asymptomatic.
she wrote me a referral to see an endocrinologist for review to see if i need medication, and to find out the root cause.
anyone has similar experience with thyroid and managed to overcome it without medications? (i don't wanna get fat taking those medicines)
and anyone has any value for money endocrinologist to recommend for a low SES uncle?
