Hello, Everyone, I have recently been diagnosed with underactive thyroid after suffering with exhaustion for many many years and a three stone weight gain over the last few years. I also have Psoriatic Arthritis and colitis. Deep joy sigh! I am still a bit at sea regarding the underactive thyroid (although I do have a very good English doctor - I am currently in Saudi Arabia- and he seems to be on the ball). So far I've only had TSH done and I've been taking 25 ug for 6 weeks (next blood test next week and will see doctor the next day). Are there any other tests I should be asking him to do and can anyone recommend any good books, as I'm finding it difficult to get all the information I'm reading, straight in my head? Thanks. Clemmie
