The GP is not happy to up my dose of Armour despite the private endo recommending it. She is calling tomorrow. I understand the legal situation is that she isn't forced to comply with the private Endo, particularly if she feels inadequately trained to deal with the drug. My recourse to this is that I've been only 3 grains for 9 years. When it was dropped (incorrectly) by the GP to 21/2 grains six months ago, I have been ill ever since. It isn't as though I'm asking for something very different and the blood test results speak for themselves as TSH has been steadily increasing and T3 dropping each time so it is plain to see what is happening. What (kind) persuasive arguments can I prepare for the call tomorrow?
