In Blackpool tests are routinely done at BVH and it is standard practice not to test T3 or T4 unless TSH is out of range. below 0.5 or above 5. therefore despite GP specifically requesting they didn't check mine even though I had TSH levels of 4.97 on 50mcg and horrendous symptoms.
AS a result the GP would not increase my Levothyroxine and therefore I was forced to increase it myself.
they eventually agreed for me to continue on 75mcg but TSH now 3.87.
however i am still symptomatic and have an appointment with GP 16th and want to ask them to establish a upward titration of Levothyroxine until my TSH levels are around 1.0.
If they refuse again what are my options.
