Thank you for the recent advise and help. I am on another page for Antisolophipid syndrome ( blood clots) but over the past year I have had symptoms for underactive thyroid.
I saw my specialist for my blood clots who ran extensive bloods, I am already on B12 injections, vit D ampoules, Iron and folate.
My last bloods came back as serum TSH level 0.06 ( 0.30-4.40)
serum free t4 5.4pmol (9.0-19.1)
I was referred to an endocrinologist ( advised 6-9 week wait) so I decided to pay to see professor Parag Singhal. What a brilliant man he has been. I saw him on Saturday, full bloods taken, and yesterday I had the ACTH TEST for secondary hypothyroidism, as he seems to think my pituitary gland is not working properly. I am seeing him Friday for the results.
I would advise anyone if they came to see him privately if you are in the South Wales area, ( I saw him in Bristol) The NHS endocrinologist I saw 18 months ago, wouldn't do a blood test as I had had one in the past year, and told me I was getting older so my metabolism was slowing down ( I am 37) hence the weight gain, and that Thyroid is not genetic, when I explained the 3 previous generations to myself had it. Mum, nan, great nan.
I actually feel like I am being treated now, and hopefully I can start medication soon as I am on no thyroid medication what so ever!
Any ideas, advise, your own stories are really welcome as This is all very new to me for a thyroid complaint
