Some of you may know that as part of a long ongoing process of getting better medication ,I saw a new Dr and had a whole load of blood tests which didn't show an awful lot, and they only tested my thyroid for TSH and T4.
I saw my new lovely Dr again last week, armed with the Dr Toft article and a few other things that I gave him to read, and he told me he will reorder the test ( am having it on Wednesday) and DEMAND the full thyroid test including T3 - he said that he did ask for it but they didn't do it.
He admitted he wasn't up to speed on thyroid issues, so said he will MAKE SURE I see an endo (even though my last Dr said they wouldn't see me whilst my results were 'in range') . I didn't even start on the possibility of T3 as he said that it looked as if T3 was an option if I am not improving. Of course, we need the TSH, T4 AND T3 to determine this....
Basically he was really, really lovely and helpful .
There be hope!!!!! Updates as they arise!!!
