I live in Somerset. Does anyone know of a Doctor in Somerset who has a good knowledge of thyroid issues as I have met with a brick wall with my GP???? She did agree to my TSH 4 being done and said my results were 'within acceptable' limits. But with two sisters with Hashimotos and Fybromyalgia and with two of us with Type II diabetes I am not sure that one test is enough to give an accurate picture. Due to a separate health issue with my sister's children and where she and her family were tested by a Genes specialist it was established that the family were all likely to have one or more Auto- Immune diseases and this has proved to be the case. I am tired of always having to fight to find out why I don't feel well, have rashes all over my mouth, and can't lose weight. I am beginning to get a very bad attitude to food as I also have a Hiatus Hernia which took 15 years to be diagnosed despite me saying it is what I was sure I had ( incidentally the medications given to me by my Doctor to alleviate the nausea and vomiting and pain I had with the hernia has meant my teeth are in a poor condition and tests done by a Nutritionist showed I have zero healthy gut flora in my stomach- so no wonder I have trouble with food!!!) and so I have little faith in Doctors.
