I don't know if anybody can give me some advice.
In the last week I have received my thyroid test results. My T4 is at 3 and my TSH is currently over 100 so i am extremely hypo but really it was only weight gain that tipped me off to the problem. I am 5 months post partum and have also been told I do have antibodies so looking at hashimotos. I have been put on 100mg Levo and asked to have another blood test in 2 weeks.
However, I have also been referred for a neck ultrasound which as far as I can tell is not common place. Does anybody know what they are looking for here? I do have a swollen thyroid and did originally go to the GP about this 5 years ago and levels came back borderline and then normal so no further action was taken.
