Dear all, I have just been diagnosed as hypothyroid and the doctor has prescribed thyroxine 50mg per day which I have not started taking yet. I have had additional tests done privately and have thyroid antibodies present and an elevated reverse T3 (rT3) which from what I understand indicates that my underlying condition could be adrenal exhaustion rather than purely a thyroid issue, though with the presence of the thyroid antibodies I am not sure. I also have a hair loss condition (Lichen Planus Polaris) which I have been told is not related to my thyroid condition directly, though I could of course be suffering additional hair loss with the thyroid condition. Because of this, I am keen to get it resolved as quickly as possible and would like to see someone this week if I can. I also want the appointment to feel worthwhile and that I have gained something (I have around 8 books on the subject and have read up widely on it). If you have a recommendation for a good endocrinologist in London or within easy reach of London, I would really appreciate you Pming me. Many thanks for your help and good luck on the road to full health. Thank you, Jenni
