    Me too, P Lynch, I was a sufferer long before the internet and I suffered greatly for many years. I wasn't tested for T3 or TPO's either and it wasn't until I found out about these things on the internet I asked for a test and bingo, I had Hashimotos disease.

    I had been treated based on annual TSH tests with levo and looking back on my old medical notes I was going hyper /hypo all the time, my illness had been almost ignored in favour of bandaging the co morbid ailments that went along with it.

    Disgusting that anyone can endorse this behaviour.
