I've had hypothyroidism for over 10 years now (I'm 41) and my levels never seem to settle. Just had another blood test as since the summer have been feeling progressively worse, no periods, hair loss and weight gain despite being on a strict diet and exercising 4 times a week, my TSH levels are now 10.3 U/mL (range 0.35-6.9). All my doctors do is increase my thyroxine dose, had been taking 200mcg but this has now been increased to 225mcg. I have finally succeeded in demanding to see the "elusive" endocrinologist but getting an appointment before Spring next years seems virtually impossible! Any suggestions? I feel constantly tired, fuggy and generally fed up with this condition.
Thanks for listening.
