Re: Question - does hyperthyroid effect blood sugar levels?
T4 was high at 13.5 FT4 1.58 and t3 110 FT3 was low/normal at 260. Dr. said she wanted to start on T3 alone and measure at 2 weeks and add T4 as needed. My thyroid blood tests have been a mess with very high antibodies and a high reverse T3.
Symptoms of sweating, hair loss, weight loss, insomnia, low energy, muscle and joint pain, etc. I could go on and on.
Thanks for the reply. Blood sugars not extremely high, just a little above normal. Not very many blood sugar symptoms. Right now I am starting metformin 1/2 a tablet in the morning and increase to 1/2 morning and night next week.
