Hi everybody, I haven't been on here for a while and if anyone has read my posts in the past they will know that after 10 years I took control of my own health and it's the best thing I have ever done.
I was encouraged by the nurse at the surgery to tell the GP that I'm sourcing my own T3, which I have done.
I went to the GP about 3 weeks ago for my yearly blood tests, when the results came back my TSH was 0.1 and T4 about 12. I reminded the GP that I was taking my own T3 along side a lower dose of thyroxine, he wasn't happy about the T3 and asked where I got it from.
I expected him to say that I was a little over active as my TSH was suppressed and lower my thyroxine but to my amazement he said the T4 was a little low and would I like an increase in my thyroxine dosage.
I told him no as I had never felt so well and there was no need to mess with the dosage.
I left the surgery having finally having it confirmed that your average GP knows b****r all about my condition.
