My doc is very pleasant and appreciated the notes i took along with me today, outlining what I have been doing since the last time I saw her in January, ie taking NP Thyroid and going Gluten/Dairy/Sugar free .
She realised I was feeling much better and could see I had lost weight, however she will not prescribe NDT as she is ' not allowed to'. No point arguing as she told me how risk averse everybody is becoming but they are now allowed to carry out more thyroid tests and can prescribe T3 albeit to patients with mental problems ! When I go for blood draw next week I will see which tests she has asked for. Hopefully TSH,FT3 & FT4, Vit B, Ferritin, Folate and Vitamin D. Also Full Blood Count, Cholesterol & Glucose.
She has given me the name of somebody she knows at a Chiropractor in the next town who takes NDT. If she can't help me then there is also a private doctor in the same town who may prescribe. Failing that I am to go back to her and she will try and think of something else. What a sorry state of affairs.
