Some advice please:
I had a blood test back in March which showed subclinical hypothyroidism, and my gp said to retest in 8 weeks... I've had that test and the results also came back as subclinical, but with a slight improvement. I've been advised by the nurse practitioner to retest in another 8 weeks (I don't have the actual levels for either test ). The thing is I don't think I can wait another 8 weeks! In 6 months I have put on 2 1/2 stone of the 3 stone I lost, and am struggling to control my weight. I am constantly cold - even when everyone else is warm. I'm tired most days to the point that I sometimes have to go back to bed for an hour or two whilst my husband has our son. I am quite irritable but have been putting this down to tiredness.
My thyroid antibodies were also checked this time and we're normal.
I'm just wondering how many times does a test come back subclinical before anything is done? Are there other questions I should be asking my GP?
