  • You simply have to get her tested - again, if possible - TSH, FT4 and FT3. And get the numbers (and reference ranges). This link might help in gaining access:

    Does your mum take any medicines? For the thyroid or for anything else? Or supplements?

    Let's see those numbers then we can consider where she is.

  • Thank you very much indeed ,i shall pass your information onto Mum, really appreciate it thank you Jayne
