Stuck in limbo and in need of advice

Hello,

my name is Paola, I have recently joined HealthUnlocked, I have been suffering from hypothyroidism since I was a teenager, (I am now 49), and I would like to ask if anyone can recommend an endocrinologist in Derby. I am prepared to go private, by now I have given up on the NHS endocrinologist.

I am so utterly drained and fed up trying to feel better, while this condition has ruled and quite ruined my life, not to mention having to listen to my GP saying that according to the blood test, all "is well and within the norm".

Any suggestion-advice would be most appreciated!

Many thanks,

Paola

firstly request copies of all your blood tests from the GP ...your legally entitled to them

then request

TSH

Free t4

Free T3

B12

Ferritin

Folate

Vit D3

with all of those inc reference ranges and your symptoms etc we should be able to help

Its no good your GP saying your results are OK

you need the actual figures therews far more to getting well with hypo than your GP or majority of Endos either NHS or private have a clue about

Save your money for nessecary vitaminsm meds etc that we will advise on
