I am a Type 1 diabetic and just dx'd with hypothyroid. TSH was 18.5 (normal range .03 - 4.0) Can anyone tell me if 18.5 is a LITTLE high, or VERY high? Also, is there anyone else who is Type 1 diabetic AND hypothyroid who can give me any information? I have gained 7 lbs. in 3 months, but am still not "overweight". This is an unusual gain for me as I have always been stable, normal weight and I am worried that my weight may run away! Will being on the thyroid meds (Levoxyl) put a stop to the weight gain, as well as the to-the-bone-tiredness? THANKS!!!!
