So we're all fine then! Maybe a poem for Edinburgh!

In Summary;-

Waiting by the letterbox,waiting for replies,

Have written and sent my queries,

Ah ha - hear what "experts" now advise.

- Take whichever, lio, meds you like -we really don't mind,

Differences in brands or batch?

Just take any type or kind.

Adrenal function is just fine, synacthen tests says so,

If you still want reassuring - give it another go.

But when faced with ACTH - wow your cortisol sure goes!

Vit D - now there's a thought - we had you on maintenance dose,

Perhaps you could now double - yes - let's say that'll take you close.

Iron - well forget it you're now post menopause,

It shouldn't make a difference and taking it's a bore.

All vitamins and minerals? They probably don't matter,

you can go and buy a supplement - your wallet won't be fatter.

Antibodies really? They're just a diagnostic tool,

To use their levels to help us treat, would make us all look fools!

Research projects - what based near home - you'd like to be in one?

We don't know of any - because the finding out is done.

Trialling your timing - of taking your T3?

you might be able to we s'pose - if you go privately -

With bated breath I read again - their advice on NDT -

guess the response , all sufferers - still unbelievably -

Levo you've stopped: Lio you're on and that's you see the active one,

And as for others? - we've no clue what T1 and the T2 do -

shhhh - We'll not even say NDT to you!
