Last week I attended my annual Endo check-up appointment and got to meet my new NHS Endo who replaced my previous one.
To my amazement, my new Endo didn't boo my desiccated thyroid treatment which I have been on since Nov 2011. He did confirm that Levothyroxine is the preferred NHS treatment however he was happy to prescribe the T3 (Liothyronine) and I have (for the first time in 25 years) a prescription for the T3.
I felt that my new Endo was very understanding. He was willing to listen, I named all of the symptoms that NDT helped me with but told him that I felt that there was still a little way to go, my T3 levels were still somewhat low.
Despite the fact that my latest blood test showed my FT3 levels - although low but still within the reference range, he was happy to prescribe the T3 following my symptoms report.
I hope that with adding a little bit more T3 to my current treatment will help to further improve my health.
I just wanted to share the news about finding a really nice, understanding Endo and if you live in Hampshire you can PM me for more details. I live in Wiltshire but we moved a few years ago hence I still go and see the Endo in the place where we used to live.
