Spoke to a different GP and they agreed to do the antibody test but that's where the good news ends. Doc said they would not consider any treatment until I reach a TSH level of 10. When I explained how tired I'd been feeling plus other symptoms, he said we would need to look into other possible reasons for this - it wouldnt be because of my thyroid !
He said the antibody test is just an indication for the future and that result wouldn't change their view on medicating me. He also said I would need to have the 'common' symptoms of hypothyroidism aswell before meds were started.
I stopped arguing at that point, incase he changed his mind about the blood test - so never found out what the 'common' symptoms were, weight gain i presume?
Got Dr Tofts book today, so I can get swotting x
