I would be grateful for some advice to those who may have been there and done it regarding responding to a GP who will not consider prescribing NDT's as they are unlicensed. I hesitated initially regarding whether I should write them back or not but I have decided to pursue this. Whilst I have to resign myself to the fact that my doctors are not going to help me in this way, i would be grateful if I could direct them to an article to show that other doctors in the UK can and do prescribe and to also give them some current, definitive information on NDT's as they also stated in their response that this should be administered by a specialist who understands thyroid issues which they state they are not.
They have asked to be kept abreast of anything that is discussed from any consultations I have with the specialist which is fine. I in turn have asked that if they cannot support me with regards to administering NDT's can they at least enable me to have my bloods tested regularly so that I monitor how my body is responding to medication - do you think this is reasonable? Also, which tests should I try and get done i.e. standard TSH tests, what else? Finally, I have asked if they have any tests pre 5 years ago (when I was 100% so that I can look at the results to give me an idea of what works for me - is this a good idea?
Thanks for any help you can give in advance
