Do you think I have a thyroid problem?

From: brett09 - 9 years 10 weeks ago

Ever since I was little, I always struggled with my weight. Im 16 now. I was never fat but I was always chubby. I always had to watch what I ate even at a young age to control my weight. I am always tired. I am diagnosed with depression and bipolar and had two suicide attempts and constant mood swings and grogginess. I've had a bad case of gynecomastia (man boobs) starting as early as age 10 and its still there. Do you think I have a thyroid problem? I would like to get off the meds for the bipolar and depression and focus on the root of the cause - that is if I actually do have a problem with my thyroid. And if you think I do, should I talk to my doctor or see an endocrinologist, what should I say?
