Hello hypothyroid wise ones
I have recently had another shouting match with my GP, him shouting because he feels threatened ( I think ) me shouting because I know more than he does about my own body ( I know ). Asked him to test for lots of things I have read are important, but got no T3 results and lots of other stuff missing. Vit D came back low 46nmol/L ( 75-200nmol) Free T4 13.0 pmol/L (10.30 - 22.70pmol/L) Serum TSH 3.69 mu/L (0.35-5.50mu/L B12 482 ng/L (211-911ng/L) He wants to retest in another six months b/c that's what the lab's told him to do and doubt he's made a connection with my thyroid, but I know there is one, just not quite what it is.
Weary now. Taking some savings and will be making an appointment to see/ travel to/stay overnight before or afterwards b/c daren't drive >300 miles in one day Dr S in Birmingham. Have a SIL in Belgium and soo tempted to take her up on offer of a six month supply of Cynomel ( GP's given me 75 mcg T4 on which I have felt worse and gained two stones...tried a higher dose under protest ( his ) and heart was racing so came back down ) for next to nothing, but still feel such a junior leaguer and worried as also hypertensive although BP succesfully regulated by meds.
Should I be concerned ? Should I get anything else tested before I see Dr S?
Thanks in advance for responses, off to bed as utterly wiped out. For a change.
