Hi there I was diagnosed with underactive thyroid about 2 years ago. I found the GP's fairly uniformed about thyroid issues so i saw a nutritionist. She helped alot and told me about Hashimotos which it would appear I may have. So i am now GF and have a very healthy diet. I was taking nutri thyroid bu I can'T source it now, so i am looking for something else. I haven't had bloods done for about 18 months because even if i felt well the blood results came back TSH very high and T4 very low. I just wanted to treat symptoms rather than blood results.
Anyway as I can't get nurti thryoid i thought i would book for bloods net week (they will only test TSH T4), to give me a base line before i start on anything else.
I dont get alot of symptoms even though my bloods have been way out in the past, mainly low energy irritable, muggy head headache.
I have some raw thyroid i have taken for last few days, but i have also got some Thiroyd, i don't want to start this until i have had my bloods done. But i wondering what people think is the best way forward with blood testing, Do i tell my GP i have some Thiroyd or not? Im not sure what is ok to discuss with them and whether they are allowed to help with blood tests if i am taking something like that.
Thanks you for any advice
