I was diagnosed hypothroidism 5 years ago, while being tested for umpteen other things because I was so unwell. My diagnosis was told as follows...
"You're hypothyroid, you'll take one of these a day for the rest of your life"
That was it lol
At the time I was so relieved to hear I hadn't got cancer, everything else was just a bonus !!
After reading a few posts here, I decided to get a copy of my recent test. I hadn't taken any levothyroxine prior to the test. The following results were recorded as 'Normal TFT results consistent with eurhthyroidism' (must look that up, never heard that word before!)
Serum free T4level 15.6 pool/l. 10.00 - 22.00 pmol/L
Serum Tsh Level 0.57 mU/L
0.10 - 4.00mU/L
I e no idea how 'normal' these figures are. I just know that I constantly feel fire and I'm getting fed up of it being put down to my arthritis.
I look forward to reading your opinions.
