I first had hypo symptoms about 15 years ago, as a teenager. My then GP ordered blood tests as he was fairly sure it was a thyroid issue. Unfortunately, I’ve been severely needle phobic for about 20 years and didn’t have the tests done so I have no idea what the figures would have been. I eventually had a general screen done following breathing problems in August, which by chance included thyroid tests. My tsh was 5.2. I don’t know whether any other tests were done. I understand protocol is a repeat after 3m, which I’ve just had done and will be discussing the results on Monday. If, as I understand things, I’m unlikely to be treated unless my tsh has doubled in 3 months what is the point in the repeat test?
