Hi Everyone - I was just wondering if any recently diagnosed people could help out. My doctor has given me 8 weeks of tablets and told me to book a blood test for later than 8 weeks (I've booked mine for 9 weeks time).
At the time I didn't think to ask (shocked by the diagnosis) but this will mean that at my blood test I'll have been off Levothyroxine for a week, and 2 weeks before I get an appointment scheduled to talk again with the doctor and get a new prescription.
Does this sound like normal practice? Is it so they can see whether my results were a one off low?
(FYI: 15.22 TSH (0.27-4.2); 6.8 T4 (12-22))
