Gp not helpful

Hi everyone been to gp feel worse now than before !! Didnt listen at all really showed her blood results not concerned re thyroid results

Given colecalciferol 50,000 units one a week for 6 weeks then 1,000 units daily after that

Cyanocobalamin 50mcg twice daily

No bloods and want to see me again in sept

Ask for ref to endo which she doesnt think she can ref me to because there out of area so just feel so frustrated

Any advice most welcome

Oh dear Wacko13 but not unexpected :(

I suggest you ditch the Cyanocobalamin, it's not what you need. You should supplement your B12 with Methylcobalamin and here's why

Just buy your own. Solgars or Jarrows sublingual methylcobalamin lozenges. There are 5000mcg and 1000mcg doses, I expect your result is very low for your GP to even consider prescribing cyanocobalamin and I expect you should start with the 5000mcg dose but if you want to post your B12 result members can confirm.

Did you ask for a specific endo who she said was out of area? If not then your area must be covered and she's making excuses not to refer you.

As she has given you a D3 supplement, I'm guessing she hasn't told you to take K2 as well, they don't seem to know about it. When taking Vit D it aids absorption of calcium, K2 directs the calcium to bones and teeth rather than soft tissues and arteries. Buy yourself some K2-MK7.

Actually, I've just had a quick look back at your last post, lots of information was given on there by Greygoose and your B12 at 175 needs serious supplementing so go for the 5000mcg dose.

PS - are you addressing your Hashi's by being gluten free? Gluten contains gliadin (a protein) which is thought to trigger autoimmune attacks so eliminating gluten can help reduce these attacks. Supplementing with selenium also helps reduce the attacks.

Info on Hashi's :


Thank you ☺


Gp said vit d and vit b12 insufficient but i not deficient in them, nope didnt recommended anything think she was more put out that i had private blood tests thank you for your comments☺ greygoose is very wise and very helpful i want to thank everyone for there support 😊

Wacko13 What do you mean when you say "Gp said vit d and vit b12 insufficient but i not deficient in them"

Your Blue Horizon test shows clearly that your Vit D is low at 49 - it needs to be 100+, and your B12 is extremely low at 175, it should be around 1000.

Also take note of the advice about Hashi's considering you said in your first post above that you now feel worse than you did before. The nature of Hashi's is the fluctuation of symptoms as and when the antibodies are attacking.
