Hi, I'm ashamed to say I'm new to really understanding my condition so asking for any advice you have!
My history is.... I was diagnosed with hashimoto's thyroiditis after having the left side of my thyroid gland removed due to a benign tumour 10 years ago at the age of 24, due to the hashimoto's my right side could not compensate so I have been on increasing levothyroxine since then. It has been a rollercoaster over the last 10 years with two pregnancies and life changes all affecting my condition. I have gone from 100mcg to 200mcg in the last 3 years and have now been referred back to an endocrinologist after being (mis) managed by GP's since my last pregnancy 7years ago, this is due to my antibody levels being 263 when the normal range is <20 I believe (I had to insist on an antibody test as they didn't want to do one)!
For the last 7/8 months I have been having increasing symptoms and have gone considerably downhill and feel I'm back to where I started 10years ago. My last bloods were just within range but I don't feel any better.
My concern is I have never been tested for anything like vitb12 or vitd, never had my cholesterol tested etc etc.....i've simply had my TSH, T3 and T4 levels tested and thyroxine adjusted. My consultant appt is just over a month's time, what do I need to be asking for?
Thanks in advance, Kerry.
