New to site and looking for guidance.
I was 'accidentally' diagnosed with hypothyroidism aged 28 are locum gp order range of blood tests to do witn menstral problems ( i could rant about it taking 4 months for me to find out from a gyneacologist...).
I started out at 16st on 50mcgs of Levothyroxine and here i am 18 years later weighing 20st and on 250mcgs levothyroxine. (I'm not lazy...for lent i set myself the challenge of walking 120 miles in 6 weeks and i walked 140).
The bottom line is i feel awful. I appreciate my weight plays part of that...but i can't think straight, i'm forgetful and confused. I have lots of the symptoms of 'hypothyroisism' despite the dose of medication i am on.
What indicators should i be looking for to evaluate whether my t4-t3 conversion is 'off'?
