I had my hormones checked twice around a year ago, I went to the doctor around 3 or 4 months ago when I had the cold hands and feet symptoms, he said everything about glucose, liver function, and thyroid came up perfectly within range. He did not do vitamin or mineral deficiency checks on me though, and when I asked he said he couldn’t justify running the test because I appeared fine to him. And as far as thyroid, the only number I remember him referring to when he was explaining everything was TSH. A year ago it had tested at 1.15 and 1.45, and then during the cold and yellow hands period it was like 2.95, but he said that it wasn’t a big deal and he couldn’t diagnose me as hypothyroid. He said the cutoff number was 4.
I’ve theorized that the return of my feeling and energy level had to do with metabolism, as in my metabolism right now is lowered.
Is there a specific test I’m supposed to do to check this out? Could this be candida related? Does this mean I should not do something like this diet?
I just wish I knew what was wrong with me….
I’ll try the test that you mentioned for metabolism tomorrow morning, as well as search more for tests and treatments of lowered metabolic activity/energy problems….
The doctor did theorize that I just felt better taking that multivitamin because of the vitamin B complex that raised my metabolism temporarily
By the way atka, thanks for your post…I’m glad someone finally can relate to my symptoms! In your post you gave me a lot to relate to and think about.
May I ask how things ended up for you once you got the hypothyroid diagnosis? I assume hypothyroid must relate to lowered metabolic activity…
