Hi, I'm hoping to find some answers here, as my GP seem to differ in opinions.
my first blood test showed TSH 8.7, then we repeated in October and it showed 5.3 then repeated again on 2nd of this month and it's showing as 8.3.
They want to start me on thyroxine, but from what I understand this will be likely to be a lifetime deal.
i have no symptoms, other than struggling to loose weight, but I am not trying as hard as I could.
I really feel caught between a rock and a hard place, life time medication scares me, does the medication come with any side effects of it's own?
am I at risk if I choose not to take medication?
Is there a chance my thyroid will improve with out the meds?
whats the difference between subclinical and not?
so sorry for all the questions, it's come as a shock as I completely didn't expect the results to come back showing this !
