New to site but I am a member of B12 site.
I have been suffering from thyroid problems for about 15 years having been treated in the private sector. Due to circumstances I can no longer afford Private. I have neem on 75 mg levothyroxine and 1 times 60 Armour Thyroid for the past long time.
My question is will my NHS GP prescribe me AT because although I can get it privately I can not afford it. My last blood test 1 year ago which was private gave the following results can anyone explain them to me and dies the dose I am taking seem right.
TOTAL THYROXINE(T4)96nmol/L59 - 154
THYROID STIMULATING HORMONE* <0.01mIU/L0.27 - 4.2
TRIIODOTHYRONINE(T3):2.1nmol/L1.3 - 3.1
I had the blood tests done at about 5 pm in the day but I had taken my medication that morning.
I want to visit my NHS GP explaining I have been on the AT for many years and just hope he will agree to prescribe them. I will also get him to do new blood tests for me.
Any help much appreciated.
