Morning everyone. This is my first post on your site, which I have found a great support for the many questions we have when diagnosed with hypothyroidism. I went for a routine health check which showed my Tsh at 22. The doctors called me to arrange to medicate onto 75mgs of Levo straight away that day. Not much change at all in my symptoms which seem far ranging and realise I wasn't imagining feeling unwell for some time. I am going in for first 6 week blood test this Wednesday first thing, with a doctors appointment booked for next Monday when results should be back. I am nervous about them doing the right amount of tests Wednesday and have booked a doctors telephone appointment for this afternoon to discuss this. Please can you advise what tests they should/would normally carry out and what tests I should ask them for. Also so I have a fasting blood test this Wednesday and take Levo after I have seen the nurse? Your help is appreciated.....
