I was diagnosed with Hashimoto's nearly 3 months ago. I think I am doing well on my Levo and I feel I am nearly at my optimum level. I did think that my GP did not really care about my treatment, as she had told me in the past that the NHS did not test for antibodies, which as a Hashi's sufferer is a major concern to me.
I am now following Dr Haskell's 3 phase plan ( as set out in his book "Hope for Hashimoto's") which has indeed offered me hope. On my visit to my GP last week, I decided to tell her about this plan . I was very pleasantly surprised that she seemed interested in what I am doing asking lots of questions and also asked me WHAT I NEEDED FROM HER.
I am extremely pleased with the reaction from my GP and I am now going to be tested for my antibodies.
Just want to add a big thank you to everyone on this site for the valuable advice I have received on taking Levo and what supplements to take and knowing that there is support if I ever need it.
Good Luck to everyone
