Recommendation for Private Endo in London?

Hi,

Can anyone recommend an Endo in London who is fully versed on gut, nutritional deficiencies, adrenal problems, psychological factors (in other words not a "TSH is fine you have no problem") doctor. I was seeing someone who is now emigrating so have to fine someone else.

Thanks

Got a few Private Endos - not sure if they are in London though. Do have some NHS ones in London, they may do private too - drop me an email..

I have just found out, after seeing Endocrinologist in Stobhill Hospital Springburn Glasgow, that my Thyroid is NOT WORKING at all. So I have been changed from, Thyroxinine, to Levothyroxin, also my Adrenal Glands are likely to not be working either. I am to have a substance injected via cannula, to try to kick start my Adrenal Glands. So far since ;August 2016, until now, March 2017, I have had at least 20 U.T.I's, and can now only take one Antibiotic meds, for them. It is called Manunril. Can you help me further??

I've been seeing Dr Paul Jenkins at the London Endocrine Centre in Harley St

Hi Sugarplum, I am considering seeing Dr Jenkins. Would appreciate your thoughts as not getting much support where I am locally so trying to be proactive! xx

I've been seeing Dr Jenkins for about 3 years now. I was taking T3 and T4 when I first went to him and was feeling fine. The reason I first went to see him is that the previous doctor I'd been seeing moved out of London down to Sussex. In the end I found the journey rather inconvenient so I sought out the London Endocrine Centre and Dr Jenkins. He seems good to me although he doesn't seem at all concerned that my TSH has been relatively low for a couple of years. Usually with an under active thyroid the TSH is high. If any one can shed light on that I'd be interested to hear. Sadly Dr Jenkins has now taken me off T3 as I've been diagnosed with osteoporosis. I dont feel so good now and have definately put on weight! Now I'm on 100mcg of T4 and I've recently started medication for bone loss (unfortunately)

Give Dr Jenkins a try - I'd be interested to hear your thoughts. Sugarplum

I'm sorry to hear about your osteoporosis and that you've been taken off T3.

Could you tell me how you were diagnosed? Did you have a DEXA scan? What prompted you to be tested? Did you have any symptoms? Thanks.

I've had osteopenia (the precursor to osteoporosis) for a few years and was having annual bone densitometry scans. I didn't have any symptoms though.
