Do you have to have both an abnormal TSH level and abnormal free T4 before doctors offer you Levothyroxine?
Reason I ask is my TSH level was above range at 13.⅔ miu/L - Ref.Range (0 .20 - 4.00) and my
Free T4 was 12.0 pmol/L (10.0-20.0), which I believe is within range, if my understanding is correct? (I still have a lot to learn) in March 2013
Not one single doctor has bothered to explain to me, as yet, since I was diagnosed in Nov 2013, what hypothyroidism is, so I was both happy and relieved to find this site, thank you!!!!
I was only offered Levothyroxine, in November 2013, however, my rheumatologist had the above results back in March 2013 and now I'm wondering why I wasn't offered Levothyroxine then?
Would be so grateful for any advice xx
