Hi All, I am 58 years old and struggling to get my GP to understand about thyroid. I have had private tests done which indicate that I have hypothyroidisms. I've been working hard in the last year to lose weight etc, instead it keeps going on! I have been back and forth to GP who do not know what to do with their results that state I am in the 'normal' threshold. I have recently joined an Australian Group on FB, who provide advice and guidance on how to eat well with Thyroid issues - they have a lot of information, and the group is supportive. BUT, I am still here in the UK, doing everything that I am told to do with no results. I have managed to talk by GP into referring me to an Endocrinologist, so that is hopeful, I think!.
