Hi! I was diagnosed hypothyroid 6 years ago now but have recently found out I have Hashimoto's Thyroiditis through a specialist. I'm taking it he knows, but to be honest I'm not aware of having any difinite test to ascertain this diagnosis. I did ask my GP what "Type" of hypo I had but was told they are all the same. Anyway, dispite asking questions about natural dessicated thyroid hormone and T3 (all of which were dismissed - reason being, no evidence to suggest they are safe) I still came away knowing no better and still remaining on the same level of T4 only that I've been on for the last 6 years (no mentiion of things I could do to help the hashi's, it wasn't really addressed in any way!). I have made an appointment to see my GP next week. How should I go about making the most of this appointment? I'm so determined I'm going to get something positive done when I go to see the doctors, and yet when I get there I fail miserably in getting across what I want done or what I want to know. What should I be asking for? Too woolly headed to think straight!
