I recently moved to the UK (Oxfordshire) from Canada and am running low on my prescription of NDT. I went to the GP that my school assigned to me and she has been very unhelpful. I brought copies of previous blood work and the bottle of my prescription (ERFA Thyroid) to show her as well as a few information sheets in case she didn't know much about it. I also did a bit of research and realized it is very difficult to get NDT here, so I found the information about prescribing medications on a "Named Patient" basis on ThyroidUK and gave it to her. I'm not sure if this is true, but she contacted me a few days after my appointment and told me that she cannot legally prescribe any kind of NDT. So I reluctantly agreed to switch from my ERFA (which I'm having no problems with) to the standard levothyroxine medication available here (I was previously on 88mcg of levo, before starting ERFA). At my appointment today I found out that my GP has no idea what she's doing. When doing the conversion, she only factored in the T4 from my ERFA and told me that T3 is negligible when calculating the converted amount, so I now have a prescription for a mere 25mcg of levo!
So essentially my questions are: Are there doctors who can prescribe NDT here in the UK? If there are, how can I find them (I'm willing to travel)? If I can't get NDT here, would I be able to book an appointment with a proper endocrinologist so I can at the very least get the closest equivalent of levothyroxine or do I need a referral?
Any advice would be appreciated. I am almost of my ERFA and am scared of what will happen when I start such a low does of levo.
