Be careful: A1c is a 3 month average so a 5.3 is normal but your fasting glucose is in the diabetes range the last two weeks. If this continues for 3 month, your a1c will not be 5.3 anymore and coukd be higher than 6.5%. Watch your sugar and carbohydrate intake. Increase water and physical activity. Be sure to recheck a1c in 3 months. Good luck.

OK: Thyroglobulin level is only useful if you are monitoring for thyroid cancer recurrent or just prior to surgery to evaluate the baseline tissue burden. If you still have a thyroid gland and no nodules or suspicion for cancer, I don't see the reason to check thyroglobulin. Thyroglobulin antibodies are antibodies to the thyroglobulin. This number is supposed to be negative <1.8.

Evaluate it: It's not normal to feel this way. You need to get this evaluated. see your doctor. To worry or not depends on what is causing this symptom.
