Hi I'm relatively new to this site and have found it incredibly informative and helpful so thanks to all.
I'm asking on behalf of my daughter who has lots of symptoms of hypothyroidism. Has had her tsh tested which we have been told is normal at 2.39 her free t4 is 19. She has all of the classic symptoms, freezing cold hands feet, wears jumpers in the middle of summer, tired, depressed, dry skin and hair loss she has raised tryglycerides and low Hdl which we know can be due to PCOS also. She is also undergoing tests for PCOS. I've read that hypo is quite common in PCOS but the doctor refuses to check her antibodies. I've just ordered her a blue horizon test to check for free t3 and antibodies (hoping it's accurate) and will then take results To hopefully see a private endo if anybody could recommend a good one. We did see one a couple of weeks ago and he was incredibly arrogant quoted blood tests that weren't even done didn't even read the list of blood tests and just says she looked perfectly fine to him and basically implied I am an overprotective mom! So angry!
Thank in advance.
