Hello! I've just joined HealthUnlocked recommended by a few friends. I've treated for underactive thyroid for about 19 years. Currently on Thyroxin/Eutirox 100.
This last summer i felt absolutely exhausted, awful mood swings and even though GP tested me for anything, it all came out ok. I tried to be referred to a specialist but they wouldn't do it as my test results were within normal parameters. I was in Spain recently and had some blood tests done over there as didn't feel well. My TSH levels are at 11 and T4 is at 1.01. They told me I would probably need my meds increased
I'm going to try to get an appointment with my GP to see if they can look into it, but can someone help me understand what those values mean? I'm so tired of going to the doctor and being told i'm ok when I don't feel well. I'm hoping this time bringing a copy of those tests might help me a bit more.
If anybody has any thoughts/advice I would be very grateful - thank you very much!
