I saw my GP yesterday following 6 months off work with what now appears to be a 'rapid cycling' thyroid which has impacted my bipolar. The GP completely refused my request to be referred to an endo as she said I'd already been diagnosed with Hashimoto's 3 years ago and my blood tests were now normal (the TSH and T3 were well out of range 3 months ago). This despite a psychiatrist and a hepatology consultant saying I must see one.
So I'm taking matters into my own hands to try and promote better thyroid health in myself. Years ago I identified I was sensitive to wheat and more recently a nutritionist suggested Fructan intolerance (I'm not coeliac - I've been tested). So from today I'm going to eliminate all wheat products and see if I can also eliminate onion and garlic (which will be difficult). Anyone got any tips for doing this? I asked my GP but she wouldn't help and even refused to comment on whether doing this might be beneficial.
