hello everyone, I am hoping you are able to read this as I have not had the chance to be able to respond to you all until now. THANK YOU all sooooo much of the advice and words of wisdom you gave me, it was very very useful.
As an update, my appointment was a bit of a mixed bag really. I have convinced the Consultant that I saw (which was a different one yet again) to test me for T3 - She won't do RT3 though as according to her the Trust wont allow this. Anyway she said that if it is abnormal then she will trial me on T3 - Great I thought, as after doing a lot of pre reading etc, with the help from you guys, she commented on me having a good knowledge of the illness and I am very sensible. What I couldn't convince her of was my low Iron, B12 & folate levels - she feels they are not low enough to be concerned about, yet she is happy for me to deal with these myself! Lol
I have put on weight, again, this time a whole 1 pound in 6 mtgs, so that was a bit of a relief as I generally thought I had put a heck of a lot more on. (Still need got lose tons though).
What she has said though is if my T3 is not abnormal I am discharged from the clinic as there is not much more they can do there that my GP can't deal with.
For as sad as it sounds but I am so praying that my T3 will be abnormal just so I know what course of action and treatment I will be dealing with rather than being back at square one.
looks like a trip to Boots is in order tomorrow to try and obtain necessary vitamins, Iron, b12, folic acid, selenium.
