Re: newto this
Hi Stacey, Welcome the the thyroid board!!
Sorry you have to be here. What were your last lab results and when were they?
You should be checked every 6-8 weeks at first is what I have been told, until they get you regulated. It takes 4-6 wks for your body to get the meds regulated. When you first start, it can be slow going - that's what I am doing right now, and I HATE it!
Then every 6-12 mo UNLESS you are having symptoms!!
Sounds like they just put you on the meds and then ignored you.
You are from Cheshire - is that UK, I think? I believe they only test for TSH there, unless you go private, which really sucks for you!
