I am getting nowhere with my GP.
My levels at my last blood test (which was taken in the afternoon) were :
THS - 1.1 range 0.4 - 5.0
T4 11 range 9-19
My previous test from November was
THS - 0.8 range 0.4 - 5.0
T4 10 range 9-19
I am repeating myself as I have posted these before.
Doctor was very patronising, implied I am depressed, told me to exercise (until Christmas I was, but according to doc too much!!), eat more ( I am 3 stone over weight and am struggling not to put more on), I should get my boiler serviced (it's new)....Basically anything but even considering that my Thyroid might be the problem. I took in the symptom list which he refused to look at. Told me my results are perfectly normal and refused to accept that they are on the low end of the scale and may be low for me.
I asked if my T3 could be checked - of course not! I didn't bother to ask for a referral to an Endocrinoligist.
I have booked a private blood test but after today am not optimistic that they will take the results seriously.
Why are GP's so reluctant to diagnose such a common condition?
Does anyone have any suggestions. I am at my wits end!
