Good for you. We have to challenge this at every opportunity. Hugs. X


It will be interesting to see the print-out of your recent thyroid gland blood tests. Please put the ranges in when you post.

I think it is about time they took into consideration the clinical symptoms and not diagnosing only by the TSH.


shaws has got a point. xx


rather than leave all the decisions to your practice why not invoke YOUR right of a referral to a specialist endocrinologist to your gp------he/she cannot refuse ----but make sure you do your research before for the best trust to be reffered to first........use their rules when you can ......and if the endo is as useful as a chocolate teapot in a forest fire ----invoke YOUR RIGHT [under nhs rules----which have to be adhered to----] for a second opinion to a trust of YOUR CHOICE ....i.e. any within the nhs system direct from your can then get the treatment that you need....alan


I don't blame you for writing, it's not acceptable to be left ill. Take control of your health and don't rely on the NHS. Let them know you mean business!
