i have my tsh level checked about every six months since 1993 cause my thyroid is enlarged and my antibodies were high but my tsh was still under 5.5. then in july out of the blue and on vacation i started getting dizzy and weak and excessive hunger every two hours. i seen my dr. he said i was probably hypoglycemic functional, what is the difference between functional and reactional? at the same time he re-tested my thyroid and my tsh was almost nine and it still is. so does one have anything to do with the other? anybody know? please help! i'm not on meds yet, due to start 0.08 mg of synthroid on monday. will this help my hypoglycemia if they are connected or could the hypoglycemia flipped the switch on my tsh? anybody that has any advise would be appreciated. thank you in advanc............harley... p.s. i feel o.k. that is why i havent' started meds yet, just trouble with the hypoglycemia, actually it seems better too since i started working out at ballys. exercise really does help!!!!!!!!!
