I made my first post a week or two ago posting results of the tests I had done via thyroid UK with genova and have since had my appointment with the endo.
As with the past 2 years I have been seeing her (every 4-6 months) she tried to tell me my problem was not the thyroid as it was 'borderline' and tried to get me to take metformin again - 1) I don't have diabetes and
2) Metformin made me feel very unwell!
I produced my own blood test results and those of my biological mother (whom I was not raised with and have recently reconnected)
She was very interested in my family medical history and the fact that both my mother and grandmothr suffer hypothyroid and other issues
Bottom line, I left with a prescription for Levothyroxine 50mcg, which I've been taking now for 7 days without any effect
I will persevere and am also taking vitamin D for a deficiency, as well as B complex and am awaiting the results of further tests that were suggested by people on this board.
Thank you so much for being here, you gave me the strength to be assertive and proactive in my own treatment. I really thought I was going out of my mind and feel so very poorly
I'm looking forward with anticipation to being able to function once again
I'm wondering how long I need to take the levothyroxine before I'll feel any benefit (if any) or at which point I'll need to tweak the treatment or explore other treatments
