Cholesterol all out of wack and I am diabetic.

Anyone have any ideas...

Re: Help!

Cant help much but it looks like you're not absorbing the T3.

Those are very old labs and are way out of date. You should get free t3 freet4 and TSH along with anitbodies tested.

Dont feel bad though, I am in the same boat. Retarded doctors

Re: Help!

Welcome to the board. Sorry you are not feeling well. Sadfreek is right. If you are concerned about your thyroid you must get FT4, FT3 and TSH values. You can post the number here along with your lab ranges and also tell us your symptoms...then we can help you better. My guess with a high cholestrol is that you may be dealing with hypothyrodism. Might be a good idea to get checked for the anitbodies for the autoimmune diseases Graves and Hashimotos while you are at it. Not uncommon to see diabetes with thyroid disorders either. Hope this helps.

Re: Help!

The TSH isn't back yet I guess so I don't know what that level is yet. I was very sick last year and since then never felt "right".

I started losing my hair, skin dry, blurry vision, severe panic attacks and depression, menstrual problems, brittle nails, cold intolerance, stomach problems, constipation, problems with sleep, irritability. I am diabetic, have high cholesterol and GERD and panic disorder. Now I really wonder after I have read some of the other peoples posts how much of this is hypo??

I talked to my pa today and without waiting to see the TSH he put me on a low dose of Synthroid. I was looking at one from a couple of years ago though and it was 4.5??? I dont know....
