Hi, from my profile you will see that I have a family history of autoimmune problems. In addition to both my parents and sister being hypothyroid I have close family members with vitiligo, type 1 diabetes and coeliacs so we feel up against it. For many years I have accepted the GP's management of my thyroid but in recent yrs due to vast increases in my weight (plus most other typical symptoms), despite careful eating and regular exercsie, I have started to really feel the need to do more myself. I have only ever seen a consultant once, when first diagnosed, I think this was because it was unusual that both my parents were hypothyroid (not related except by marriage!!).
I currently take 200mg of levothyroxine daily.
My latest blood test showed:
I just had a letter asking me to repeat my blood test in 3 months and this was odd as normally it is anually or occasionally 6 months. Therefore I phoned to see what my results were but I don't really know how to interpret them. Any help much appreciated.
