I've just got back from my first appointment with the endocrinologist and am still a little shocked about his extremely helpful and co-operative attitude.
He listened to everything, made lots of notes, examined me and has now ordered a raft of tests, including TSH, FT4, cortisol, U&Es, Vitamin D, prolactin and oestradiol - says it's important to check all aspects of the endocrine system and get to the root cause of the problem. What??????
The downside is that the next appointment isn't for 3 months but he says he'll write to my GP as soon as the blood results are and send me a copy "so that we know as soon as possible what may be going on". He also does not appear to be anti-NDT. There were a couple of things that he said which I'm not sure about so will be doing another couple of posts today asking for advice.
Unfortunately for me, as he completely caught me on the back foot, I didn't raise everything with him that I meant to <slaps forehead>
I've sent his details to Louise for inclusion on the list.
