Well just when you thought I was a bit of a hero getting NDT on the NHS.......snatched from the jaws of victory. Seriously though had a letter this morning that smacks of a cover up with nasty undertones. I dared to question a recent blood test as it was impressed upon me it was ok to do on the day of taking meds. It came up as at3 being over range at 6.9 and TSH at 0.03 (and?!) I was asked to halve my dose to 1 grain. I emailed asking would it be ok to do another retest without meds as I clearly wasn't hyperthyroid (not even slightly) I receive a letter this morning from another Endo saying he never believed I had hypothyroidism as all levels within range 3.28 TSH 9.6 T4 and T3 3.4. Yeah right. He didn't actually mention T3. Ferritin is normal (it's 22) but I do have a history of anxiety and depression (really?) I had panic attacks for 25 years and they stopped as soon as I had thyroid therapy. He closed the letter saying I should be tested for Epstein Barr virus (that's herpes to you and I folks!) My family history of hypo got a small mention. Am I furious? Oh yes! Will he get an equally snotty letter, oh yeah. Just one thing, can I have some anecdotal evidence re TSH suppression and NDT plus and not taking meds on day of test. Thanks x
