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!

Fantastic! Well done Sarah. That just about sums it up.



You're very clever. You'll have to set it to some music and it could be a Thyroid Anthem.

That's a great poem! I've just tried singing it to the tune of 'o come all ye faithful'...well, almost! x

It is a transcript of the letter I received on Saturday from my endo - just thought I'd make it rhyme a little could ask my Irish music friend to write us a tune :-)

I can even imagine who the endo was if you went to RIE


Very good and so true...unfortunately! sigh.....
