Had a good appointment with my preferred GP at my local practice. Had a chat about my long term symptoms, my goals for the future and a look at blood tests. It appears that I haven't had T4 tested since 2011! My TSH is 2.5 (0.35 - 5) so the plan is to get it to the bottom of the range over time. In the meantime he wants me to persist with 25mcg levo for 6 weeks then review dosage. My cholesterol is 8.3, but he agrees that optimum thyroid levels should improve matters.
He wasn't impressed that the endo has basically abandoned me following his diagnosis of autoimmune thyroiditis.
He has requested all the relevant blood tests as advised by yourselves, yet their system didn't have option for T3 tests!
Feeling optimistic for the first time in years
