My doctor says that I am in normal range but my gut tells me that I have a thyroid problem or at least some kind of a problem. I have quite a few hypothyroid symptoms but the one odd symptom is that I am always warm if everyone else is comfortable and I tend to sweat quite a bit. I'm 35 years old, probably about 40 pounds overweight.
Symptoms: fatigue - always tired, blurred vision, dry skin (scaley patches on my arms), inner ear itching from dry skin, memory loss, difficulty concentrating, muscle aches, joint pains, usually a slightly low body temp (97.8-98.1) even though I feel warm, headaches (minor but seem to be more frequent), puffiness around eyes and palpitations.
Here's the results (at least the ones I thought could apply):
T4 Free, Direct = 1.42 ng/dL range .61 - 1.76
Vitamin D, 25-Hydroxy = 25.4 ng/mL range 32.0-100.0
TSH = 3.497 uIU/mL range .45 - 4.5
Vitamin B12 = 339 pg/mL range 211-911
Triiodothyronine, Free, Serum = 4.2 pg/mL range 2.3 - 4.2
Possibly unrelated but could help pinpoint:
LDL-P = 2239 nmol/L optimal 2000
Small LDL-P = 1870 nmol/L high > 1200
Total cholesterol = 179 mg/dL - high but normal
LDL-C = 93 mg/dL
HDL-C = 29 L mg/dL should be >40
Triglycerides = 287 mg/dL should be 3.9
Large VLDL-P = 5.9 should be <5.0
Let me know if there are other numbers that may help. I got quite a few standard blood tests done. Doc said I was not diabetic also.
Thanks for any input!!
