I'm trying to wade through all the of the varying info on thyroid issues. My ability to focus, my fatigue, my headaches, sensitivity to cold, my acne, my constant sense of being rundown, my suddenly greying hairs at 24 years old, and varying symptoms that could go on, led me to this forum.
In October I had some tests run because I felt awful. I just got a full print out of them today because - I still feel awful despite the doctor in October telling me everything was fine. I looked at the print out today and it shows me that my TSH is at 1.82 mIU/L and my free thyroxine is at 15.6 pmol/l which i know are both deemed normal.
However what I also was quite confused to discover and what my doctor didn't mention -I'm a very healthy eater and run marathons, work out regularly - was my cholestorel is very high at 5.4. My CK is also up at 277 and my neutrophils down 1.96 and transferrin saturation at 18%. I've read into the links between both raised CK and cholestorel with hypothyroid and there does seem to be some,but I'm unsure.
So. I thought I'd ask you guys. Is it possible this is a thyroid issue still even though they say normal levels? Should I push for further testing in this area or just move on?
