A follow up for my sister, I can't find this info with my usual google-skills, so I hoped one of our experts may know...
My sisters tsh is low - out of range and her t4 high. She hasn't had t3 tested (sorry I don't have the exact numbers to hand but I don't think it's critical for this question) She otherwise feels well. She's lost quite a bit of weight, but no other hyper symptoms.
Her periods stopped about 6 months ago, she's 39.
So I know that being overmedicated can cause periods to stop, but would this also result in reproductive hormones (fsh and lh) looking like a menopause? She's had an ultrasound scan which reveals shrivelled ovaries and womb too.
So I can see why the GP will be looking at menopause and offering HRT, but I'm afraid I don't trust the GP to look beyond the obvious and end up treating a symptom rather than another problem.
So your thoughts would be appreciated.
