Have just come back from seeing my GP.
I took my "Dr Toft's Understanding Thyroid Disorders" with me and he immediately said I can see you've been reading and agreed what a good series of books the BMA Family Doctors Books are.
I said I was greatly encouraged that things were moving in the right direction after he had increased my thyroxine from 50mcgs to 75mcgs and my TSH had gone from 4.08 to 1.7. and I was hoping that he might increase my thyroxine further to get my TSH below 1 and also get my T4 tested + my B12 vitamins.
He straight way suggested I go up to 100mcgs and agreed to the other tests,though he said the lab don't always do the T4 if your TSH is right because they assume that the T4 will also be right too.However we will put it down and see what happens.Get your tests done after 6 weeks on your new dosage and we'll see how things go.I was speechless !!!
We then progressed on to what a good weekend it had been for British Sport and I left feeling like everything was going to be OK and my GP is working with me to get things right.
Have a good week everyone.
