I have been on before about my husband. Basically he's had underactive thyroid for about 7 years and both of us know nothing about the condition. He takes 125mg of levothyroxine a day.
?For months now he's been really down, irritable, really tired, cold, emotional, no energy - the list goes on.
?He went to the nurse and got his bloods taken and they came back perfect. He made an appointment to see our GP. He wrote a list of all the things wrong with him and the GP was not interested. He said you may have a mental health problem. As advised on this forum he asked for his readings which are
?Free T4 18.1 pmol/L (12.0-22.0)
TSH 0.78 mU/L (0.27-4.20).
Can anyone tell me what this means. He also got his blood pressure checked and it was really high so they are going to monitor that.
Is there anything he can do to help himself. I honestly feel for him. His personality has changed so much recently.
?Sorry for going on but i'm trying to learn about this condition (I was that stupid I thought some people who were thin had overactive thyroid and larger people had underactive thyroid). Oh how wrong was I.
