Hi, I am on levothyroxine75 mg as I had my pituitary removed 17 yrs ago and have managed quite well until recently. I think from my symptoms I may be hypo but at my last endo apt the consultant only measured my free T4 and TSH , my TSH was obviously non existent and the FreeT4 was sat nicely in the mid range.
She was a very nice doctor, spent a good 5 mins telling me all about her mums recent illness and another 5 in how she was trying to become a GP. My proper consultation about 1 min extended to comments that my skin was dry and I looked puffy. Not quite sure where to go from here, I am thinking of going to my GP and asking him to do the T3 etc or send away privately. I am taking iron at the moment for low ferritin (11 )and iron (9 ), both below normal range. Do I need to stop this before testing?
