Hi all met the nicest most understanding specalist today. Boy does she know about thyroid. Looks like I'll be going down T3 /t4 combo route again but this time very slowly. Won't be starting yet as she thinks I've adrenaline issues. Having cortisol tested wed morn first thing and also booked for synatchen test next Monday. She's so clued up I was speechless. Delighted I'm supplementing said it was disgraceful the way I was treated by my local hospital endo. Told me I will get better it might take a little time but it will happen. I had everything ready for her was waiting to be told it was all in my mind or that my bloods weren't too bad but she agreed with everything I said. Clutter she also told me what you've always said to me that my ferritin was very high and she's doing bloods to see whats happening. She thinks my adrenalines could be an issue due to all the steroids I was on during my chemo and when my colitis was bad. It's awful that we have to pay to get better but it will be worth every penny if she gets me sorted. I'll email Louise with her name for anyone here in Ireland. Thanks everyone for all your help. Hopefully this is the beginning of my journey back to full health. Maud's
