Hi guys, I just wanted to vent my frustration this morning. I have been suffering with depression since my teens (am 36 now) and lately I have been thinking it may be partially down to a slow Thyroid. So I wanted to get it checked. The initial tests by my GP and a health screening through work, both showed low Thyroid function. My GP referred me to a specialist and I went to my private insurer to make the claim. This morning it was declined as a pre-existing condition because I had described some of the long list of symptoms being there since my teens. Other have come along recently and made me suspicious it could be the Thyroid. But now I won't be able to investigate it or potentially get treatment because I have had symptoms from long ago. Never pursued
the Thyroid option before. I am so disappointed in the system.
