I'm a newly diaagnosed hypothyroid patient. Blood results actually came back last week but it was tge 60lb weight gain in 10 months that made me go to the doc in the first place.
I've never had thyroid issues that I know of although there is a possibility my father had it- no way to find out his history or my own.
So I started wondering 'how' I mean everything has a reason it happens (i thought). Called my nurse and she told me it's just not putting out enoigh hormones, no other reason.
Through all my reading to get acquainted with my diagnoses not once did it say 'may happen for no reason at all' there was always a cause to it. According to my nurse that's just not the case.
My question is can your thyroid be underactive for no reason at all? Also is there a test you had to tell you what went wrong?
Any help would be appreciated, thanks for your time.
