I have had underactive thyroid for 43 years I have been on various doses of Levothyroxine over those years. I've read a lot about my condition as it is MY condition. One size fits all doesn't work . I wanted to lose 7 lbs in weight 2 years ago at 10st 7lbs. I enlisted with a trainer and did weight training and other exercises 3 times a week, kept a food diary eat all the right things as my trainer was monitoring everything and he still said I wasn't eating enough. After 2 years I now weigh 11st 12lbs I have tried my very best I promise you I have. I am check by the Doctor he has requested a T3 blood test twice now and the lab has ignored his request, I return to see another doctor who looked at my results and on the last one it said the lab agreed to do T3, but they didn't do it. The new doctor rang the lab and ask what was meant by the comment on my test results? and told they were very sorry T3 should have been done they had made a mistake. Dr has now requested a further test for T3 and has written in capital letters across the form. I am hoping it will be third time lucky and the test will be done. I know prescribing T3 is controversial in UK.
BUT IT IS MY LIFE THEY ARE MESSING ABOUT WITH AND I AM STRUGGLING
