Our expert says:
If you suspect that your thyroid is underactive then you really should ask your gp to send you for the relevant tests because he/she would also have to prescribe the correct medication for you if you are suffering from hypothyroidism. Taking your temperature is a very unscientific way of determining hypothyroidism and as mentioned, what do you do if you are lacking thyroid hormone? For your own sake have the dr send you for the thyroid tests and also ask to have your insulin resistance checked. Discuss the use of Xenical with your dr if you are struggling to lose weight.
