I've been recently diagnosed with underactive thyroid. I'm not sure of my levels and will certainly ask for my results.....However I've been put on 100mgs and due my follow up bloods in August. I was due a shoulder operation but this has been postponed whilst my bloods level out.....
Anyway, I'm a little worried because since being diagnosed I've been reading alot about thyroid and talking to people and now I've probably got too much info. Someone told me that being underactive "just doesn't happen" - which I've read it does just happen like that sometimes. And other people telling me that perhaps it could've been a blip and the GP should've adopted a wait and see approach..
I've read that being deficient in Zinc could be the problem so now I don't know what to do? Should I question the doctor and ask if I've perhaps been put on meds too quickly and perhaps I could have a zinc problem? But then how would I know?
As you can probably tell....my head is just rushing around with information and it's getting me down.
Other than the thyroid issue, im perfectly fit and healthy in every other way...ideal weight, sensible diet, exercise etc.
Thank you for anyone who can help reassure me.
