I didn’t know it was so complicated to get tests in Germany. I live in France, and no one asked me why I got a complete hormonal test 3 years ago. I just told my doctor I gained weight without eating, and couldn’t loose it, no matter how hard I tried. He started asking questions..how I felt (tired) what about my periods (not seen in 3 months), digestion, skin…and sent me straight to an endocrinologist. 3 months later I was diagnosed with severe hypothyroidism.
