Hi I've just joined the forum and hope to get some advice from members here.
During routine bloods my TSH came back ay 7.1. I was retested after 4 weeks and it had reduced slightly to 6.4. The thyroid antibody test gave 235 and on the form the note said that indicates autoimmune thyroid disease.
To start with my GP dismissed the result as not significant. He then looked at the guidelines and offered me a trial of Medstead of 25mg for 8 weeks then a review.
I went to see the doc with symptoms of tiredness and joint pain and stiffness. Was I right to start the meds and is this the correct dose? I'm female and 59.
