I'm new to this but relieved to read the stories of so many.
I'm hypothyroid and was diagnosed about 3 years ago when I was 23. My mum has hypothyroidism (autoimmune) and my sister has subclinical hypothyroidism but due to family history is being treated.
Since being diagnosed I have asked all of my GPs why I have hypothyroidism. Multiple tests from multiple GPs surgeries as I've moved about have told me I don't have autoimmune hypothyroidism despite my mum having it. I haven't pushed too hard on getting an answer to why I have developed it, the only answer I've had is 'sometimes these things happen'.
Do I need to push on the reasons behind why I have developed hypothyroidism in my early twenties? Will knowing why help my treatment or is it just something I have to accept sometimes happens?
For info I'm currently on 100mg on weekdays and 125mg on weekends. Last test a few months ago
