So my daughter eventually sees an endocrinologist in newscastle after being given high dose thyroxine, collapsing in Carlisle hospital, then sectioned. After utter persistence on my part my daughter is released after drs deliberately withheld Thyroxine in the mental health unit despite proof of her congenital hypothyroidism. She was also illegally held when she became an informal patient. On release the gp flatly refused a tsh test. She went back and insisted to a different gp. Her tsh was 87.02 with myxodema. She had a test prior to section showing raised adrenaline. A Gastro dr explained this to her that if someone said 'boo' it would be raised!!!!. This was the same dr who told her "looking at you your thyroid looks about right " - then tsh of 87.02!
She sees the endo who orders endocrine tumour tests (5-h1aa and gut profile for endocrine tumour) she goes today, sees a registrar not the endo,.who answers every question with "I don't know " and tells her she won't see the endo again and refers her back to Carlisle.
Is it normal for an endo to order tests, see the patient on that one occasion then discharge her from his care courtesy of a registrar before she has the results?
