I am going privately to get my hypothyroidism sorted out. I have been diagnosed privately and the specialist has wrote a letter to my GP saying that I have an overwhelming amount of symptoms that need to be treated. My GP won't treat me. I have written a complaint to my GP because she has told me that she will not treat me until my TSH is above 10, in that case I will be very ill and overweight. I had a TSH of 5.09 when I decided to go private. Can my GP do this? She keeps telling me that she is adherring to guidelines. Is this correct?
