So in Friday went to the Dr for my yearly check up! Blood pressure was perfect! Weight... I gained 10lbs in a year... wtf! So the nurse practitioner ordered a thyroid test. I get an email on my Dr office website that said my liver function is up a lot and my thyroid is up... I go and look... my thyroid is 4.79... the high of normal is 4.82... well that explains the huge weight gain. My liver function is triple what it should be. Ill be honest um freaked out now. The nurse practitioner said I have to so a non fasting blood test next month, umm hello isn't that something they should be figuring out now not in a month for it to possibly worsen? And thyroid... yup she said they won't test for of until next year! WTF? so i get to spend the next year either starving myself and working out double time only to continue to gain weight! I don't think she heard me say I gained 10lbs since Aug of THIS year! So my question would it be a big deal to email my actual Dr and pushed for something to be done now? I don't want anything to worsen. Thanks.... also anyone with hypothyroid here? Did you gain weight and then get it off with treatment? Is there any advice you can give me?
