Hi there, I am a relatively new hypo thyroid sufferer, 10 months on Levo and most recently Levo/lio. Sick of being ill, it's never worked for me. Affected work, study and whole life with chronic fatigue, digestion, low mood and loss of get up go which I always had before. NHS doc not happy with. Levo doesn't work for everyone and for some it makes them worse. I am one of those unlucky ones it's not working for. Have ordered Armour thyroid from US to try after reading many reviews and going to try it. Have read BTF website and they say you can get it from GP on a "named patient basis". Has anyone had any luck with getting an NHS GP to give them a prescription for Natural Dessicated Thyroid here on a named patient basis? Just now I'm having to pay for it and happy with that if it makes me well again. Just wondered if anyone had any luck with that as many people I hear order it themselves and test their own blood using private blood tests rather than battle with NHS.
