I know someone will be able to clarify things for me. I have 1/8th of thyroid remaining after having rest removed 30 years ago. My GP keeps telling me my bloods are 'normal' which is an insult in itself, only interested in TSH and T4 and I think that's all they ever test for. If I do not have a full thyroid gland why do they only look at this result? I think it's the pituitary gland telling the thyroid to release thyroid hormones ( is this correct? maybe total rubbish) ? If there's only 1/8th of gland available surely the TSH result would be rubbish anyway? Would it not be low naturally?
I have found out I have had glandular fever 8 weeks ago and now have abnormal urea and creatinine in my blood. Sorry, I've gone off the point. I have GP appt next Tuesday and just know they will blame all my hypo symptoms on the glandular fever. I am taking 100mg Levo every other day and 75mg days in between, a couple years ago I was taking 175mg a day so as you can see this is a big drop. Any help or advice would be much appreciated thank you.
