Endo that was very happy that I'd decided to take NDT!!!

He's also written to my GP for a Vit D prescription ( 35 ) >70 and is going to take a load of bloods next week, as he said Im low in so many things....B12, Folate, Calcium, Cortisol. Sodium etc. He also wants to add a little T3 to the Nature Throid I'm taking to get my TSH levels back down to a normal level,which is (25) at the mo and also my Free T3 and Free T4 up that are below range. T3 gave me headaches daily last time I tried it with Levo, hoping it won't happen with NDT. Any thoughts Guys?

No, just that you have an amazing endo! You should begin to feel much better soon.

Thank you, I'm in Somerset and not sure if he's on the list for Endo's with an open mind??

That's great. Don't think negatively at present as he is acknowledging your clinical symptoms as a whole which is rare, I believe. Did you mean to get your TSH 'down' - you said up.

Pass his name to Louise, if you didn't get his name from her - louise.warvill@thyroiduk.org.

We look forward to following your progress.

It was definitely more than luck. I think it is miraculous.

Can imagine - from what I remember you've been feeling absolutely awful for ages. I agree with Shaws - has to be more of a miracle than luck but great result anyway :-)

I have!! It's been over a year now and I can honestly say, I felt a little better but not 100% in November and December. I started nature Throid back in August and then Gp decreased meds in Jan (should of Increased) and now I'm ready to crash tenfold. Lets hope he's the miracle man x

Hi, so glad you've got someone on your side! Did you just switch yourself to NDT?

Hi Harry,

I did...I told my GP just before Christmas and he didn't really comment but the Endo I saw yesterday, seemed pleased I'd made the switch. I must say up until Gp told me to decrease, I think I had the best 2 mths in 14mths. Probably felt 60% better, so still a way to go but seemed to be getting there steadily. Then reduced and plummeted!! I buy it online and am back to 2 grains as I was on before the decrease. I'm going to see if this lovely Endo will sort me out a prescription to save me buying online.

It must be some sort of a miracle :D! Like a dream Endo!

I would try to add t3 if I was you, if you feel unwell you can always stop taking it. E xx

He sounds great. Did he prescribe NDT or are you taking it on your own? You are lucky to have found him.

I was on Levo but decided to try Nature Throid Aug 2013. I buy online at the mo but I'm gonna ask for a prescription next time I see him x
