I'm writing another letter to my GP (which I will ask him to forward to the last endo I saw) and was wondering if someone could just clarify something for me so that I can quote you (anonymously, don't worry) to him to support my point. My health has continued failing since I last regularly posted here six months ago, and I simply cannot afford to keep paying for tests privately. I need to get him to agree to further investigation as to the cause of my persisting illnesses, but he is disinclined to listen to me. My theory is that, if I have quotes directly from people who have spoken to me, he'll be more inclined to take me seriously (well, it's worth a try at least).
According to a link from Heloise drrind.com/therapies/thyroi... my symptoms concur with with adrenal fatigue, estrogen dominance and perhaps hypopituitary-induced hypothyroidism (but my temperature doesn't fit the criteria). Going by the link, they do NOT, contrary to what my GP says, concur with "poorly effective thyroid hormone". I have PCOS, which is speculated to be linked to estrogen dominance. My ALDOSTERONE (EDIT: I previously said renin. I had a renin+aldosterone test and got the results mixed up) tested privately is also below normal. I've also had adrenals done by another private lab (one of the recommended ones in uk thyroid forums) and yes they range from low when I get up to rock bottom before I go to bed, but the GP refuses to take them or my aldosterone levels into consideration. He also refuses to test me for hypopituitary.
My latest test bloods read TSH 0.77 and T4 12. They have been falling steadily for over a year now. At the time of those tests I was on 75mcg Levothyroxine daily (I take 3/4 of a pill). I'm still taking that same dosage and and since yesterday have started on my internet purchased Cynomel. Thus, the question is what do you make of these results? Would you say my conclusions are correct at all?
Any help is greatly appreciated. Thanks!
