I have a Drs appointment next week I am going to ask for combination therapy T3/T4 or desiccated thyroid, I know what the answer will be but I have to ask one last time. If my Dr refuses I have taken the decision to self medicate as I cannot go on any longer with my deteriorating health so far this week 5 migraines, I think it will be a daily occurrence soon.
I have printed off a copy of Dr John C Lowe's paper on Stability, Effectiveness and safety of Desiccated Thyroid vs Levothyroxine: A Rebuttal to the British Thyroid Association.
Are there any other papers I should take with me to plead my case ? as I know my Dr isn't half as knowledgeable as most of the people on this forum regarding Thyroid.
Should I print off a list of my symptoms- unfortunately I tend to lose my train of thought a lot and cannot seem to communicate effectively when I am in-front of my Dr and tend to start crying at how miserable I feel.
I have Paul Robinsons Recovering with T3 book, Your Thyroid and how to keep it healthy by Dr Barry Durrant-Peatfield, Overcoming Thyroid Disorders by David Brownstein. Any other books or papers I can read up on to prepare me for a change of medication?
