Hi all, I was diagnosed on Monday as having Autoimmune Thyroiditis (AITD) with Subclinical Hypothyroidism (SH).
Although I am not celebrating being ill, I'm thrilled to bits to finally have a DIAGNOSIS! 😂
For 6 MONTHS I've pushed my GP and 8 specialists for an FTF, suffering and being sent from pillar to post, ignored, belittled and made to question my own sanity by my GPs, NHS specialists, a private gastro and a private rheumatologist... 😢😠
Regardless, I decided to insist and push my GP for a private endo appointment. So, to get the desired FTF done on the same night of my 1st appointment and diagnosed 2 weeks later, is simply JOYFUL! 🎉
I have just collected my 1st meds, filled out my FP92A to get free prescriptions, and read the meds leaflet before taking my 1st levothyroxine 50mcg daily dose. 🎁
However, dont know when to take my LT as Endo didn't tell me and my GP continues to be hopeless. WHAT TIME IS BEST FOR TAKING MY MEDS? I read somewhere that it is best to take your thyroxine just before going to bed. Is that so? ⌚ SHOULD I EAT BEFORE, AFTER OR IS IT BEST TO TAKE LT ON AN EMPTY STOMACH?
All advice welcome 😊
And happy Easter to you all! 🐣🐇🍀🌻🌼🌈
