I had a heart operation in January and was put on Amiodarone. I came out on 28th January
Started Amiodarone at 200mg three times a day, then after 7 days down to twice a day then after another 7 days once a day.
I was eventually seen by cardiologist on 23rd May and was taken of this horrible drug. It has a lot of iodine in the drug., about 47% I think.
Anyway to the point.
My GP took my blood on 19th May for Thyroid test of TSH. Came back at 7.55mu/l Abnormal.
GP said leave it for now and we will see. Anyway did another blood test 30th June and result was 6.88mu/l with note underactive thyroid abnormal and a note to check blood again in 4 weeks. I have appointment booked for 28th July.
Is my GP doing the right thing as I have some of my hair, literally, coming out, feel weak and have trouble sleeping? BTW I also have Afib which does not help.
Has anyone any thoughts on this.
Am I going the right way.
