Saw Dr P today, lovely man. I had done my homework prior to going thanks to reading his book and asking questions on here. Despite my recent bloods take with GP showing im 'in range', Dr P thinks my adrenals are very poor. He did his reflex tests, blood pressure and heart rate. Those results along with my obvious symptoms showed I am toxic with T4 and not converting to T3. I had already stopped Levo for a few days and started Nutri Adrenal Extra. The plan is to take 50mcg levo, 1 NAX a day first week, building up to 4 NAX a day. Adding in one Nutri Thyroid tablet a day from this weekend. Gradually increasing the dose. Have been given option of Urine thyroid test and Urine adrenal test with Genova. GP wont accept the findings no doubt, so test would just prove Dr P and myself right in our diagnosis of symptoms. Fingers crossed for success anyway, watch this space!
