I've just found out that my usual GP has left the practice so I've made an appointment with another who I know is hypo, but who seems to be of the "all you need is levo" brigade. I've been on levo since last August (now on 100mcg) and still have all of my symptoms. The only one that had improved was my constipation but even that is now becoming a problem again. I am unable to lose weight, have terrible mood swings/depression, problems with my hair etc etc so feel like I need to try something else now as T4 alone clearly isn't working...and this is where you lovely people come in!
I always feel awkward trying to tell GPs how to do their job and am expecting a bit of opposition from this one so can anyone advise me what I should be saying to him to convince him? Also my appointment is at 11.45 so I am planning to miss my levo (which I take approx 3-4am) and take it afterwards-is that OK?
Thanks a lot
