I am three weeks post diagnosis with hypothyroidism and have my first appointment with an Endocrinologist this afternoon. Could someone please tell me what I can expect to happen/what will be discussed as I am clueless? I made the decision not to take any medication until after seeing him.
free T4 11.48 (12-22)
T3 4.45 (3.1-6.8)
I have been tested for vitamin levels and now on all the recommended vitamins and minerals, have both antibodies for Hashimoto's, have gone gluten and soy free, awaiting vitamin D test (but supplementing any way) and await a cholesterol test.
I feel great, like really good. For the first time in 25yrs I got my period without any PMS, headaches etc. But I have started to think about other things that happen to me - for example last night as I was dropping off my heart beat felt irregular (slow and kind of pained when I thought about it) and I jumped myself awake with a 'BOOM' of the heart...like a panic state, a couple of times.
