Consultant in Sheffield

I take 75mcgs of T3 thrice daily for Hashimoto's and feel very very well on it. I have been seeing an endocrinologist at Lincoln hospital for the past year who says he can only prescribe me Levothyroxine with a small amount of t3. He says my test results show I am overstimulated but that he can see I'm not. Also, my temps, heart rate and weight gain show that I'm not.

He's now said he would like me to see a specialist at the hospital in Sheffield for a second opinion. The consultant at Sheffield is called Am*t All*h***d*a. I've written it like that as I don't know if it's okay to put in his full name.

Has anyone had any dealings with endos at Sheffield and did you have a successful outcome?

Thanks for any replies.

Fortunata, it's ok to post the doctor's full name when you are asking for feedback but replies must be sent to you via private messages.

Thanks, Clutter. His name is Amit Allahabadia. If anyone has had any dealings with him, would you pm me, please?

Just to check - do you mean that you take 225 mg of T3 a day or that you take a total of 75mg in 3 doses of 25mg a day?

Hi Suze, I know this post is a few months old but wonder if you'd mind PMing me any details you have of Dr A A. I heard from someone that they felt he was quite good and open minded and was toying with making an appointment to see him.

Many thanks

Georgina

I see Dr A annually. I find myself in a very awkward situation because the outcome of seeing any Endocrinologist is down to what your situation is and also how will your GP is to prescribe what is needed.

The other thing to bear in mind is that Dr A actually reads comments about him online.
