I've recently thought I might be diabetic due to having symptoms such as tiredness, having to urinate during the night, weight loss and constant illness. I had a fasting blood test which showed that my blood sugar level was a little higher then average. I then went to my doctors and explained my diabetes results to him and he made me take another blood fasting test. He also tested my blood for other irregularities.
When my blood test came back I was told that I had an over active thyroid. I was not offered any medication, I was just told to keep coming back every 6 months for blood tests to keep an eye on it. When I asked if there was anything to stop me feeling tired all the time he said no. He then made an appointment with the local hospital for me to have a scan on my thyroid as he said that sometimes a hyperthyroid is caused by nodules on the thyroid. When I had my scan I was told that I had a cyst on my thyroid but that it doesn’t effect the way my thyroid functions.
I have two questions to ask. 1. Why wasn’t I given any medication? and 2. Can a thyroid cyst change the way your thyroid functions?
Any help or advice out there would be great.
