Does anyone know where I can find an NHS gp who will increase my thyroxine to get my T4 levels to the upper end of the range or elevated. TSH currently undetectable, T4 is 15 and T3 is 5.1 (currently taking 100mcg thyroxine and 20mcg liothyronine. I really need someone who works in the same way as Dr S Myhill or Dr Skinner. I have tried speaking to my gp and a few others at the practise who will in no way increase it and obsess with my TSH level instead of looking at the full picture. I live in the Brecon area where there is only one GP practice. I am under an Endo at the Heath hospital in Cardiff who prescribed me T3, however is trying to lower my thyroxine dose to 75mcg and ignoring my symptoms. Unfortunately my GP agrees with the endo, who I am not happy with. I received advice from Dr Myhill which was brilliant, and discussed with my GP who still refused to increase thyroxine and wants to lower it! I am fighting this, and was told by my GP that if my TSH is still low next month thyroxine is being reduced to 75 or I will end up with a heart attack. I am sure that many GPs from my practise went to the same 'Neanderthel School of Medicine'. How do I find an NHS gp and/or endo who will not undertreat me?x
