I have just recently come across this forum and what an eye opener it has been for me..I have been underactive for 20 years and I am 57 now and on 100 Levothyroxin. Having read so much over the last 7 days I asked my GP surgery for my results from my last couple of annual blood tests. Nievly I just assumed Doctors knew what they were doing.
If somebody could advise me where I go from here with testing etc. I have so many symptoms, aches ,pains, headaches, sleeplessness to name but a few. I am a farmer so my lifestyle is very physical and demanding.
Dec16= SerumTHSlevel 3.97mu/L(0.27-4.2)
May16=serumTHSlevel 2.53mu/L (0.27-4.2)
I did not know to leave off my tabs for 24 hrs before test, but do take them last thing at night.
