Can anyone advise me on what to do next? At present I am on 50mcgs of Levo as my THS levels were 14.9 a few weeks ago. Everything I've read so far seems to indicate that GPs are not that familiar with these readings from the Saliva test and probably won't do much with the information. Although to be fair he wants me to see an Endocrinologist.
A few weeks ago I was almost ignorant of all of this stuff and went for a blood test as I have to admit I was feeling unwell. How on earth did I reach this point? Having been given the Hypothyroidism diagnosis and the fact that at some point I will need surgery of some sort for Bicuspid Stenosis I'm totally baffled.
