Brief Answer:
About thyroid control;

Detailed Answer:
Hello,
Yes, the symptoms you described are suggestive for underactive thyroid.
A person that has predisposition for thyroid problems in her family, should check the thyroid function once a year.
So, you have many reasons to check thyroid hormones: TSH, Ft4 and Ft3.
Will be a pleasure to help you further with the results.
Best wishes,
Dr.Mirjeta
