My nephew was put on thyoxine bu his endo sue to underactive thyoid symptoms, high TSH and lowish T4....his doctor not endo took him off them because he fel more unwell on them. Weeks passed and he had more symptoms, tiredness, muscle pain, stiffness and low mood.... his doctor has now started him on 25mg of thyroxine again.
From what i am told he does not not have auto immune thyroiditis..this is what his docotor has told him but im not sure what tests have been done.
His latest bloods are TSH 10.5 and 13 t4.
I am suprised he has not got an auto immune throid problem as he has diabetes 1.
If this is not the case what is the cause of his thyroid condition?
I have Hashimots and most info relates to that im just trying to find out a little more to pass on to him.
