Morning all, I have just got back from having my second blood test, first one was TSH 5.1( borderline, though this test was taken after eating and after lunch) only to be told my TSH wasn't being tested, only my antibodies for Hashimotos disease. I am nothing short of livid!
I thought regular testing of TSH was routine so you could build up a picture. I had fasted as you good people had said I should do and had it taken at 8.30 this morning.
So, do you have to have Hashimotos disease to only be classified as being Hypothyroid ?
I am very confused by my gp not requesting to test my TSH levels again. I've only been tested once for this, so is that sufficient for her to base a have / have not decision regarding my health ? Despite having many symptoms and it running in my family, I don't know what I should do now.
I am totally stunned and very, very annoyed.
Any advice will be appreciated. Thanks.
