Hi, I was diagnosed hypothyroid in the Spring and started on 25mg levo. After 2 visits to a gp this was increased to 50mg. I am now finally feeling better than I have for over a year and beginning to loose some weight too. My question is what aftercare should I expect from my doctor? Do I have to wait until I start to feel unwell again before they will do a blood test and decide whether I can have an increase in dose or should they do a regular blood test to monitor my TSH level? I have no confidence in my gp and I want to stay on top of this condition. Thank you.
