as Dr Skinner has no specialist qualifications in either general medicine or endocrinology/thyroid disease. GP said I need to see a specialist physician in the field of Endocrinology or Rheumatology.
Diagnosed sub clinical hypothyroid in February 2013 and put on 25 mcg Thyroxine:-
TSH 6.33 (0.4-4.0)
FT4 10.1 (9.8-18.8)
Retested in May 2013
TSH 2.72 (0.4-4.0)
FT4 not tested
Peroxidase Antibodies 228 (0-50
Receptor AB 0.0 (0-0.4)
VIT D 28 (0-25 insufficient, 25-50 deficient).
July 2013 - My GP agreed to increase Thyroxine to 50mcg where I felt an overall improvement within 2 weeks however last week I seemed to have had a relapse and although not feeling as unwell as I was in February, I am not where I feel I need to be and GP has said he has run all the tests possible and doesnt know what else to do - he does not believe an increase in Thyroxine is the answer as he said all my blood tests are within range and that is why he has said he would refer me (but not to Dr Skinner).
