After a 6 month long wait I've had another retest for my bloods. Just waiting for the results now. I was boarder line 6 months ago. Felt not too bad along the way, not as bad as I did get. Could feel myself slipping again so though now is the time! The nurse was lovely, especially as I ended up in tears on her! She gave me a hug and told me not to worry as being over emotional is also a sign of thyroid problems apparently. I explained about my mum having PSC, a rare liver disease and as it's more common in people who have an immediate family member with it, she told me to make a doctors appointment and tell them again even though she had no clue what it is! Most doctors don't have any idea either which is why it's been dismissed everytime I've mentioned it. So if my results come back boarder line again or negative I'm going to ask them to do my liver function blood test as I've never had it done. The earlier PSC is found then the easier it is to slow down it's progression.
