Thank you all - re GP wanting to cut my 137.5mcg Levothyroxine

A big thank you for your advice. New GP phoned me yesterday and I told him that I was not prepared to reduce my Medication as I feel so well. I also asked why T3 is never tested. He blustered about a bit but agreed that if I feel well then my Meds. did not need reducing. He suggested a further blood test in 3 months to incorporate T3 this time, which they don't normally do. Am Happy Again.

  • Result! :)

  • Very assertive so well done brenchley. This can be difficult to do when we feel so unwell. Result!!

  • Well done. Knowledge is power and messing about with hormones when you feel well on a particular dose is the worst thing they can do. They know no better unfortunately, but one has learned from his patient - you.
