i am a 58 year old female and following a blood test at my annual health check was asked to make an appointment to see my gp. she explained my tests showed i had an underactive thyroid - a normal reading was 0 to 5 and mine was 13 - this meant absolutely nothing to me. she pescribed 75 thyroxin for 8 weeks and then i am to have another blood test. i am totally ignorant of my situation and would appreciate any information, i have been taking my medication for 5 weeks. i thought my tiredness and lethargy was just due to "the aging process" many thanks
