Yes it's that moaning Minnie again, apologies in advance.
I am due to go for blood tests next week as my parathyroid levels were high (previously posted) my urologist recommended seeing an endo my GP disagreed. Been taking large doses of Vit d for almost 3 months as GP feels that is the cause, anyway my first question is when shall I stop my Medes prior to this test. There have been conflicting ideas some say 24 hrs others say 48 hrs.
I have been on 50mg levothyroxine sine first diagnosed, probably 4 years now.
My next question is regarding blue horizon testing. My GP will not test t3 so I thought maybe I will get my bloods done privately but I don't want to waste money on something my GP can dismiss having had that when gone to him with paperwork regarding thyroid stuff previously. Do private bloods carry any weight ?
Talking of weight, and I have plenty of it. I have gone from being the envied skinny Minnie who never put on a pound to a fat ugly lard arse (sorry) if I mention how I feel about it the GP instantly jumps on the depression bandwagon. This year is a big one for me, off on the holiday of a lifetime and one of my sons is getting married. At this rate I will be to embarrassed to show my body the sun, which it clearly needs and as for the wedding well the dress i have found is two sizes up from my norm and I am struggling not to need a bigger size.
I know exercise diet etc blah blah, but as you kind folk know exercise ha, I work full time have a family to keep and am constantly exhausted, diet yeah right I beardy eat and am moaned at by colleagues and family about how little I actually eat. I am seriously considering diet pills and I don't care if they do me harm, cause I hate the way I feel and look and let's be honest here with all the other symptoms what's a few more matter.
Please please please help me with some basic, quick and easy advise I am desperate and hate myself more everyday (and don't need anti depressants) just need me back 😪
