Thyroid Disease

If you are taking Levothyroxine you should have a routine non fasting blood test (thyroid function) every year.  If the dose of medication is changed you should have a further test after two to three months.

In those with no thyroid problems and who are feeling well, there is no need to routinely test thyroid function.  If you feel you might have a thyroid problem please discuss this with the GP or Practice Nurse.
