My go has written to a local endocrinologist to get me seen. I have today recd a copy of his letter stating he will not see me in clinic. I am to stop taking liothyronine as it is no longer prescribed in Somerset he suggest I increase my thyroxine although he has never seen me or my blood results. I am grossly overweight in spite of eating carefully. I see my GP this week to try and sort myself out. She is of the opinion that my thyroid function is normal and that my aches and pains, weight gain, general fatigue are caused by something else. I will post my blood results when I receive them. I am considering seeing an endocrinologist privately, will this be a waste of money? I had a partial thyroidectomy about 20 years ago and have become increasingly unwell. Would welcome any advice, this is my first time to post on this site although I follow it daily
