I've been updating my life insurance and they asked for a medical report from my GP. After reading it I was fuming. Although I've been presenting symptoms for 2 years I never had a blood test, I was just told it was all due to my b12 which I was diagnosed with 9 years ago.
I've been such a mug to just go along with what they were saying. These are the results in October after going in thinking I may have IBS or issues with my ovaries etc. They did a blood test and as you can see my TSH came back at 9. I was then told my TSH was slightly up but nothing to worry about and that they would test me again in December...not knowing anything about Hypothyroidism, I thought nothing more about it. I went back and had scans etc and all was clear.
December came and I was tested and as you can see my TSH went to 25 and T4 dropped again. I can't help thinking if I was treated correctly in the first place I wouldn't be going through everything now.
My last test was TSH 18 so it is dropping but I have a feeling I might be somewhere near if we had started treatment when it was at 9 and I wouldn't have had months of feeling so ill.
I am being tested again on Monday so I'll update again when I get my results through.
