I have had underactive thyroid for over 20 years. Put weight on at the time and never lost it despite every diet under the sun. I would love to get myself sorted and feel well but I have great difficulty in getting to grips with the intricacies of the blood results mentioned on here. I have never seen my test results and never asked my gp for them, I suspect they will refuse or make it as difficult as they can - they do this with getting appointments. They have reduced my thyroxine to 125mcg from 150mcg and I do not feel good after 3 months. I just made an appointment and have to wait 2 months to see gp to ask for a blood test! Will supplements help? Is there a simple explanation re the intricacies of the blood test results so that I can get a grip with my fuzzy brain? Many thanks
