I had hosp appt yest with consultant. Told him I felt like Levo was poisoning me and that I've stopped taking it and started NDT. I put the bottle (thyroid-s) on his desk. He said "what's that" - I just said its Natural Dessicated Thyroid. He wrote it down then said - so you feel better on this do you? - I said I did but that I've not got the dose right yet and my hair is still ridiculously thin etc. So he said ....well we had better check your levels then - cue blood test for free T3, free T4 & TSH! He didn't ask me where I got it from or anything more about it. "I'll write to you with the blood results" - I'm sure once my GP gets the letter from my Endo saying I'm on NDT they will have some kind of over reaction, but until then I'm happy that i seem to have support from my Endo (don't think he even really knew anything about NDT - too young - although consultant). Can't wait to see what these results come back like! Attached is a pic of my bloods request. Not sure if J should be feeling happy that Endo doesn't seem bothered or upset that he didn't seem to have a clue about NDT. However, he did seem more concerned with how I was feeling rather than my TSH numbers so that's very positive I think
