I've been diagnosed with hypo thyroidism today. This has been a long time coming and have recently had almost nine weeks or so off work with fatigue and low mood. I'm 35 years old, overweight , now appear to have high cholesterol??? Although I do moderate exercise and eat fairly well. I feel today that a weight had been lifted as I have had low mood for the past couple of years which antidepressants never seem to totally resolve. Luckily I have a good employer.
Now I'm just getting to grips with this, my GP wants to see me next week ax he didn't want to overload me.... not really sure what a thyroid is or what any of this means, is it serious? Can it DEFINITELY be treated/cured and are there any complications I should worry about.
Anyway that's me!!!! Hello.
