saw Dr N at sunderland royal my blood results were tsh 0.09(0.4 - 4) ft4 18.4 (12-22) ft3 3.3(3.95-6.8) my tsh has just risen from 0.01 it has always bin 0.01 untill this blood test the highest my ft3 has bin is 3.6 ihad a tt in may so i have only got results for ft3 since then, but every blood test i have my ft3 is getting lower and lower i told endo (different one) last time im having conversion problems and the ft3/ft4 ratio that i have is heart attack waiting to happen according to oxford university published paper so he booked me in for a short something test for adrenals. this endo looks a blood results and say i thing you would benefit from a trial of some t3 and i said so do i cos i will tolerate be left with a ft3/ft4 ratio of what i have he says what do you mean and i told him bout the publication and he said if you read 1 paper then you read an other 9 that disagree with it what are you going to be leave, so i said dont tell me 9 tell me 3 papers that disagree with then. no reply from endo then he starts asking about general health and asks if im a smoker and i said yes his reply i want you to stop smoking, me why endo because you are worried about a heart attack you are more likely to have heart attack from smoking than your level of ft3. me so if i dont stop smoking you will not give me ft3 even though you said i would benefit from it endo that is correct me well theres no point continuing this meeting so i got up and left, cos if i stayed any longer i would have ending up smacking him at this point (graves rage) i have contacted pals i am waiting for them to phone back or should i contact gmc to report him for refusing treatment that he has said i need
