Had blood test last week. Received letter from GP today he is phoning me on Monday as he says he must reduce my 137mcg Thyroxine. 10 years ago I had to seek the help of a private Thyroid UK listed Doctor as NHS GP wouldn't acknowledge that I had an underactive thyroid. Eventually became stabilised and when I moved house managed to get my new GP to prescrive Thyroxine. Never had a problem for the last 8 years. My TSH is 0.01 and my T4 is 19.0 (has been for the last 8 years). New Drs. taken over the practice and it now looks as if I have another battle on my hands. I feel so well on 137.5mcg and don't want it reduced and I certainly don't want my symptoms back plus the inevitable weight gain. Would appreciate any advice as to how I handle this and keep on my existing dose. Thanks. Brenchley
