Underactive Thyroid

Hi

I have a hereditary thyroid problem, mom, gran, brother, uncle. Mine is underactive and now at the age of 42, I am realising alot of my " problems"  seem to be associated with this, putting on extra weight, (not much) but it is there, tired, sometimes depressed etc etc. Plus I am going thru perimenopoause as well!! Please could you tell me what alternative / natural methods and medication I can take for this as I have a fear of taking medicine and do not want to become reliant / addicated to medication.

Hallo Worried
Are you taking thyroid hormone supplements? When last did you have your hormone levels tested?

I have never had my hormone levels or my thyroid tested. Perimenopause was diagnosed by my Doctor.
What exactly do they do for these tests. I am also not taking any supplements aside from a multivitamin now and again.
