Hi, I have suffered with underactive thryroid for 8 years and my GP has treated this with levothryoxine. Whichever dose I am on, I suffer with chronic fatigue and my hair has been falling out. This has been getting worse over the years and I finally have an endocrinology appointment. I was taking liothyronine a few years ago but had to stop as pharmacies in my local area couldn't get hold of it. This seemed to make a difference in my wellbeing and removed some of the 'brain fog'. After recently requesting to be put on this again, I was told it was too expensive and they can't just give it to me now.
What sort of questions/tests would people recommend asking an endocrinologist about? I feel this is probably my one and only opportunity to speak to an expert and want to make it worthwhile. The GPs are reluctant to run blood tests for anything other than T4, and I would also be keen to investigate potential contributors to my hair loss. Thank you in advance x
