hi, been recently diagnosed with hypo by chance after a kidney doctor was trying to find out why I had high creatinine and reduced egfr in my kidneys, my gp said worst results he had come across himself? told me I'm on levothyroxine for life but the good news was free prescription, this was after telling me I had dehydration/virus for 3 months causing the brain fog, bad concentration, acheing etc. I went through a period of feeling pretty lousy but gradually felt a lot better even before I was put on levo, tbh I thought I was suffering from anxiety and when I feel stressed or think to much about the hypo and ckd I do feel worse so I try and stay busy and surround myself people which takes my mind of it and really helps. I have read quite a bit on here about tsh levels but cant find a lot about free t4 under 5, my doc said that's the important bit?, are there any questions I should be asking my gp about this, he seemed more concerned if I start feeling depressed to go back to the surgery, I have only been on 50g of levo for 1 week and I know from reading not to expect to much to soon, just wondering with my results so far out why I'm not feeling as lousy as some of the people on here?
