Any advice greatly appreciated

Hi everyone I'm new and only just joined. I wish I'd found this site 20 years ago !

Everyone is so lovely and if I'd been armed with some of the info on here I'm sure I would have been living a better normal life.

I've been on levothyroxine for years and now on 200 mg since 1 November .. I know it's early days and we are all different but I really want to try a different medication. Either NDT or by adding t3 ? As I'm sure this will help But I've paid to see an endo here in the uk twice now and he refuses to try anything different !

I'm at the end of my tether and want to write a letter to him as my next appointment is not until next year !

Has anyone got any good points to help me compile a letter to him. I'm afraid I'm not as sharp as I used to be and can't think straight

Any advice would be greatly appreciated

Have you thought about going private for a second opinion? There are several great women's clinics and sometimes just getting another professional's opinion helps change your GP's approach.


Thank you country for your lovely reply. I have paid to go private but difficult to get one consultant to deal with all my health issues as the drugs interact. Eostrogen reacts with the thyroid meds.
