Emilychazza98 Clinically euthyroid basically means that you have normal thyroid function (as opposed to hypothyroidism or hyperthyroidism). If you are on medication, then they're saying that dose of medication is fine because your results are in range (regardless of how you feel).

Do you have your test results, if so post them with reference ranges for members to comment. If you don't have your results then ask your surgery for a print out (you are legally entitled to them under the Data Protection Act) and made a new thread.

Huge thanks for this.

So basically i just keep taking my medication? I dont have any of the results on me, but i am going for another mri scan on my pituitary gland to see if it has changed shape or size or if it is just the way mine is.

Emilychazza98 "I dont have any of the results on me" - does that mean you have them somewhere? If you get your results and put them in a new thread members can comment. Besides the test results with reference ranges, also mention what thyroid hormone you take and the dose.

In the meantime, yes continue with your medication.
