Saw the Endo at my local hospital yesterday.
Current status/previous history:
Previous Graves, RAI 2006.
Hypo blood results from May 2014. Private BH test Feb 15, self treating after GP refused to prescribe Levo. Started with Thyroid-S, moved to T3.
Current dosage 50mcg once a day (nightime) and adhoc extra 25 mcg once or twice a week.
Nhs Endo wants T3 stopped and blood test done next Wednesday, with phone consult next Friday morning.
She will not use Jan 2015 GP blood test results to confirm hypo status, but is using GP results from June when T3 was 9.90 (3.8-6.8) and wants to see baseline reading before deciding what to do next....
I assume my tsh will not rise to over 4.6 by Wednesday, am I right in thinking it could take months to rise?
Exasperated don't even begin to describe how I feel.
