sorry for this long post,well I saw the doctor again yesterday, he was lovely and took over half an hour to explain things to me but I still came away with virtually nothing. here's how it went.
I asked about my heart, what was the condition called I was shown a screen where the cardiologist or who ever wrote the report as I haven't seen an cardiologist wrote this, very rare ves and very rare sves with heart beats 52. the doctor said something about 158 or something I don't know what that's about but said its normal. if its all normal why label it very rare?
anyway as to thyroid. I went armed with my thyroid blood results tpoab 50> TSH 3.8 ft4 14.8 ft3 5.2 all within their limits. but not right for thyroid disease. I said I thought I had Hashimoto disease and he told me my tpoab was probably raised from my graves which has been ok for over 20 years since last treatment. and that I was probably not hypothyroid. he said my TSH was within normal range and i pointed it should be around one to be optimal and mine had increased significantly over the last year.I showed him my printed out letter asking for a trial of NDT preferably or at least levothyroxine giving him NHS information on how levothyroxine may not be suitable for me as its to be used with caution in the elderly I'm 64 hypertensive and with or has had graves all me. he wasn't convinced I explained about NDT and gave 5 references including (the 3 Gutter sent , thank you gutter.) and 2 from books including page numbers showing how early treatment of Hashimoto or any hypothyroid is potentially helped by early treatment and that I would be saving the NHS money if they treat the root cause of my illnesses and not try to give me medication that I don't trust and would probably be non compliant with. I went on to state that I didn't see why my health had to worsen to the point that I could barely function before treatment could begin. He said he'd have to speak to the other doctors to see if they agreed with a trial of anything but didn't think it would happen and definitely didn't thing id be prescribed NDT. I asked if they would monitor and support me if I bought NDT and self medicated he wasn't Shure. I asked where we went from here he said they would send me a letter to let me know the out come of their meeting.
