  • Thank you very much for this link.

    It made me think of all of the undiagnosed people due to the TSH being used as the only way to diagnose despite the person having severe clinical symptoms and having numerous 'names' given to their symptoms.

    Or, never having had a blood test for a thyroid gland dysfunction at all, due to the inability of doctors know the most basic symptoms - as happened to me and you go on suffering - paying privately for more wrong diagnosis and I could go on and on.

  • Yes shaws, and I often think of the poor people who were confined to asylums, classed as depressed/manic or worse because they were deficient in B12.

    How awful for them and their families.

  • Thanks for this.

  • The comments show that so many people don't want to believe her or understand. I'd like to publish my story, which had very serious consequences for me, but it sounds so far-fetched that I probably wouldn't be believed either.

  • Many of the comments are very harsh. I feel the article has been badly written or edited as there are many imponderables and inconsistencies. The fact that she was misdiagnosed by a private doctor opens her up to specific criticism by some of the respondents. I would advise caution in adding comments about personal stories, given the potential unsympathetic/judgemental responses. I am surprised and disheartened by the lack of intelligent thought by certain Guardian readers whom I assumed to be well educated.
