I am hypothyroid, and diabetic and pregnant. I get tested monthly for bloodcounts of just about everything to keep in check. Ive only been hypothyroid since February (at least finally diagnosed) and diabetic since May (at least diagnosed). Pregnant in June due in March. My thyroid count was .62 which is great for the lab count where I had blood drawn, and aic was 5.3 which is also good. But they said my co2 and sodium counts were low. WHAT DOES THAT MEAN? I called back and got a nurse who said I should not try to add more salt to my diet since for 3 weeks now Im having slight edema in my feet/ankles. Can anyone help me, has anyone had/ heard of this experience for themselves or anyone else? My endo will retest in January at my next appointment. I have nodules in my thyroid that we cant do anything with while pregnant <---not that it has anything to do with this that I know of, please help.
