Quick question. -should I have this test? As there is the possibility that hypothyroidism is inherited is it worth the money?
Back story : I was diagnosed with hypothyroidism 15years ago & at roughly the same time so was my mother. She was also found to have type 2 diabetes. Looking back I think my mum had low thyroid for years before & I also think my grandmother had it too. I have battled all my life with bad stomachs, headaches, pmt, heavy/no periods, pocs, low fertility, tiredness, etc, etc you get the picture. Many of my mums family are on the big side and have type 2 diabetes. Recently my older sister has been diagnosed with hypothyroidism too.
