I've posted a few questions on the site as I was just diagnosed this week by blood tests taken by my GP. My TSH was 7.31, that's all I was told. I was given the information over the phone - it was a short call with no explanation really of what hypothyroidism really is. He started me on 50 mgs of Levothyroxine, which he says he will review in 3 months. My question is, is it necessary to involve an endo. or can a GP handle the situation?
