My brother lives in Devon and he was on t3 for about 5 years then 2 years ago his dr reduced his t3 and added in some t4. Six months later he stopped all t3 and increased the t4 never gave an explanation and effectively got my brother off t3 without him even questioning it. Bro was initially put on t3 due to migraines and diarrhoea on t4. But they are basically under medicating him on t4 to keep him symptom free. So that they no longer need to perscribe him t3. That is criminal in my eyes. I am so scared for my brother health but he just puts his exhaustion on working long hours. And to be honest until I joined this forum I never questioned my GP advice I never got blood printed if they told me my bloods were fine I never questioned it, I don't think bro has had his levels checked in 18 months definitely not since being on Levo only....... It is a pure disgrace it really is..
