Welcome to HCM,

In hypothyroidism you may have swelling on feet.

Go for thyroid test and if it is not controlled then your doctor may increase the dose.

Go for Renal function tests to rule out renal cause and also evaluate any cardiac problem.

Ok and bye.

hi , u r clinical history is not complete , u r current age? when were u diagnosed and how long u have been using eltroxin?from how many days u developed swelling of feet and ankles , is this associated with pain or not? do u have any recent reports please send, if not go for the following tests TSH,T3 T4, CBP,CUE,Sr creatinin,LFT,RBS . There r many causes for swelling of feet other than hypothyroidism,like anemia, rena , liver problems . so go for these tests first.
