specialist prescribing dessicated thyroid in London

Hi Everyone

Help my GP has just reduced my Thyroxine from 100mcg to 75mcg as he thinks my TSH is too low. I have Hashimotos and in the past have found that my T3 levels are too low. I'm looking for a private Endocrinologist to test T3 levels and to predcribe dessicated thyroid. (someone who doesn't charge an arm and a leg woud be good)

Best of luck to everyone of this site. Caro xxx

  • Welcome to the forum, Caroxxx.

    You can order your own thyroid blood tests from Blue Horizon and Genova via thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testin...

    Email louise.warvill@thyroiduk.org.uk for a list of member recommended endocrinologists. You should check with their offices that they prescribe NDT before confirming booking.

  • Thanks that was a fast reply. Will follow up your suggestions.

  • It is so wrong that doctors adjust levothyroxine only upon the TSH result and ignores the patients symptoms.

  • Yes and I feel that my Hashimotos has not been addressed by the NHS : (

  • Carolxxx, Hashimoto's isn't treated. NHS treats the resulting hypothyroidism with Levothyroxine.
