I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism nearly 7 years ago after a long battle with my GP. Who bascically thought my issues (weight tiredness and others) were down to me eating to much and not excercising enough! I think he just thought I was looking for excuses and an easy way out.
I was sent to an endochronologist (who was also somewhat patronising) and eventually ended up on 100mcg levothyroxine.
Every year I had my blood test I felt sure it would need to be increased as I wasn't any better but I'm still on the same dose.
I recently started exploring the internet as I was curious if others were suffering the same. I then braved challenging my gp and although she assured me she believed me she didn't know enough about DNT to prescribe it and has referred me to an enchronologist. That's where we are now but I hold out very little hope of any progress and what really scares me is what do I do next. I have gained approx 5 stone and it shows no signs of stopping (and yes I've dieted excercised joined clubs and gyms) this of course is making me depressed and it's getting somewhat scary.
I would love to hear from anyone who can offer me some hope as in "light at the end of this very long tunnel"
