A good specialist please?

Hi, could any of you lovely people recommend a good, helpful specialist please? I live in Norfolk but don't know of anyone worth seeing around here, I'm happy to travel and go private. I'm currently taking 100mg Levo daily, my tsh is in range but my T3 is slightly low and out of range- not enough for my GP or NHS specialist to give me replacement though. I still have all my symptoms and want to try T3 or an alternative treatment. I know there is lists of specialists on here somewhere but I'd rather hear from the horses mouth. If any of you have had success and could recommend someone I'd be most grateful :) X

Crazykoala, you can also ask for a the list of privalte and NHS endos recommended by members. You can post asking for comments about any who may suit but ask for replies via PM.


Hi, I also live in Norfolk - don't think you'll find anybody here - I saw an endo at the local hospital last November I didn't get anywhere with her - all I wanted was a prescription for T3 (I've been taking T3 for over 5 years which I buy from Mexico and thought it was about time the NHS paid for it instead). If you find anybody worth their salt in this county please let me know. You can get a list of thyroid doctors from Louise at TUK if you are a member.
