Introduction

Hi joined this forum looking for information, guidance & support. My doc tells me nothing & im struggling big time. Been medicated now for a couple of years, 125 Levo daily, but still feel awful & developing more symptoms as time goes by. Doc not interested in symptoms, only function test results which say I'm fine when I'm clearly not!

So frustrated....

  • Welcome :))) Unfortunately most doctors are not very well trained in thyroid issues and are like robots with the function tests. You will get lots of helpful support and info here. Hope it helps you towards good health

  • Welcome to the forum, Maria2312.

    Ask your GP receptionist for a printout of your recent thyroid results and ranges (the figures in brackets after results).  Post them in a new question and members will advise whether you are optimally medicated.  If ferritin, vitamin D, B12 and folate have been tested post those results and ranges for comment too.

    These links give an overview of hypothyroidism:
