I've just come back from my first GP appointment. I had private bloods done and got advice on here, (TSH=2.48, FT3=3.85, FT4=13.46, Anti-Thyroglobulin 420.6, Anti-Thyroidperoxidase=209). GP has said, predictably, the TSH (which is the only thing he tested) is "normal" (no surprise there). When I was insistent about low FT3/FT4 and antibodies, he said it wasn't his area of expertise and will refer me to Endocrinology at GWH in Swindon. I've already ordered NDT as I'm tired (excuse the pun) of feeling unwell and not up to par and they should arrive by the end of this week. My dilemma now is do I start the NDT before seeing the endo as I'm not at all confident of getting anywhere with him/her or should I have faith that there may be *someone* within the NHS that I won't have to do battle with to get better?
