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?

my brother has hyperthyroidism, discovered by chance after an unrelated injury during NS. he started off with medication, but now on-and-off depending on the conditions and thyroid level. he is going for review every 3 months. hope this helps.

I remember one of the year, my T4 was above the limit. Didn't do anything to it. Then the next year checkup, the T4 level went back to normal. I don't why, maybe it's due to exercises.. Extreme exercises may sometime screw up blood work, I think.

Stretch your arms out with palms couple inches apart. If your hands quiver, you're probably hyperthyroid. Other symptoms: weight loss, kancheongness, hungry most of the time. Still, easier to treat than hypothyroidism.

https://en.wikipedia...ism?wprov=sfla1

my bro's symptoms include fast heartrate, weight loss, "bulging eyeballs", slightly swollen thyroid gland. our dad was observant enough to spot the symptoms and asked my bro to go for checkup, and diagnosis was confirmed.

basically avoid food containing iodine aka seafood...

For Hyperthyroid it basically means your thyroid gland is hyper active. It's producing more dan needed hormone to your body. Fact is our body need hormone to work properly eg. our body's metabolic rate. Hence when the thyroid gland is too active and produces too much hormone the metabolic rate increases and the body looses more weight. Vice versa for hypothyroid the thyroid gland is not as active as normal, produces less hormone, lower metabolic rate and thus the body starts to gain weight. The hormone when there's too much dan usual your body immune system will start "attacking" your gland.

 

The way to control is taking medication regularly and consult your endocrine specialist. Don't go for TCM. You will be wasting your time and money. Its effectiveness is too slow. There isn't exactly a cure. It's more of management. Expect it to recur thus it's advise to do blood test every year when you are off medication.

 

Ppl have the misconception that taking medication will make you fat. That's not the case. The medication is bringing your thyroid gland back to norm. You are so used to the high metabolic rate hyperthyroid gives you, you continue to eat like when your gland is over active. It's not easy to control your diet. That's why ppl gain weight fast when taking medication. You gotto exercise to lose that weight gain and monitor what you eat as your gland goes back to normal.

The fact is, there’s no magic pill for healing thyroid conditions. That’s because in order to reverse thyroid conditions and eliminate symptoms, you have to address a few of the body’s systems all at once; not just one beautiful butterfly of an organ. If you are curious about that you find more information here http://yourbestthyro...isease-forever/

the only one who can tell you if you suffer from thyroid or not is the endocrinologist, through blood tests. You may have a decrease in thyroid hormone secretion called hypothyroidism or otherwise if you secrete too much is hyperthyroidism, both if not controlled can bring bad health benefits ... so visit the specialist
