HYPOTHYROIDISM

After suffering with this condition for over 17 years i wonder if I had been sent to see a specialist as soon as I was diagnosed , would I have cost the NHS half as much as i have on all the medications i have been given that I probably did not need .

Got a great specialist now and on T4/T3 combination with vitamin d aswell and so far have ditched painkillers anti-depressants and various other medications to combat other complications to thiss illness.

I just wonder

Definitely! I too have stopped other medication since getting properly treated.

Is your specialist NHS or private?

You are absolutely right - the problem is finding the elusive Endo.
