hey guys. first post, so hi to all.

I recently went to the doctors and thouht I had diabetes but a blood test ruled it out but it appears I do have TSH. I didnt really understand what he said. Apparently my hormone levels are ok but something is producing high levels of something else because my thyroid is "ignoring" it.
I was told to check it out on google but even then I was slightly confused.
A few of my symptoms include :
Intolerance of heat / sweating
feeling tired / run down/ lethragic
low sex drive

thats about it off the top of my head.
Is this over or under active? Im really not sure of what to be looking for.
Ive got to go back in december for another blood test then maybe thyroid hormone after that. Its all very confusing.

Any ideas or info would be a massive help, cheers guys
