Hi all. Had my first Endo visit this morning. He seemed nice, felt my neck, did reflex tests, asked a lot of questions. Did say that being veggie my GP does need to give me B12 injections with a result of 196 (197-900). He has put me on Levo (Teva) 50mg to see if they help and wants to see me in 12 weeks (receptionist says more like 14). BUT despite high TPOab he has put me down as subclinical hypo and not auto immune and says they need to do more investigation to find why I am subclinical.
My questions are what kind of tests are these he wants me to get for next time and do I still need to pay for prescriptions if it is subclinical? Also both the Endo and the Chemist were very specific about me taking the levo first thing but I rarely get up at the same time and often wake with a headache/migraine needing tablets, is it really that important to take them a.m.? Thanks in advance.
Oh and he says try having a brighter outlook, it might help to be more positive 😏
