Hi I am applying for ill health retirement due to long term hypothyroidsim which has become worse and I am unable to work or function normally.
The Scottish Pension Agency has certain criteria ,one being the predictability of me not getting better within the 5 1/2 years I have left till I actually retire at 60.
How can I explain the nature of my disease and it unpredictabiliy.
They also want me too have tried all possible medications for this.I have been on levothyroxine for 14 yrs and Endo said I should stay on same dose of thyroxine for 6 months ( 3 months in ) then sh
e will trial some t3 ,but she states that there is no eveidence that it works.
How can I suppport myself ,could anyone help ?
