Thyroid

Hi Doc

Please can you tell me what type of specialist I should see if I want to test my thyroid gland. I suspect that I have a thyroid problem as my weight is completely inconsistent. I am 36 and weigh 45kgs. If I skip a meal, I immediately loose weight and if I eat constantly, I gain a few inches! I also have silver grey hair. Looking forward to hearing from you. Kind regards.

Thank you for visiting health24.com.

You should consult your GP for the initial thyroid level tests. He/she will then refer you to a endocrynologist.

Kind regards
