Hi, I have waited to calm down to give this update.. I think I am there lol... I went to see the endo on the 2nd Aug and I got a guy (Never seen the consultant) But he was ok, but started to ask how I had felt on my T3 since March I said out of 10 I felt a 4 to 5 and that was better than the 0 in March, so was he thinking of increasing the T3 from 20 mcg... The look was priceless... He started to say that actually they were trying to take patients off of it as the NHS wasn’t prepared to pay blah blah.. So I took out my Blue Horizon test sheet and told him I had Folate, Ferritin and vit D and b12 Deficiency and I had stated on hrt that was coming good for me re sweats... I then said, they wouldn’t be taking me off T3 as it seemed to be helping me and the cost here needed sorting out seeing as it is really cheap non prescription in other countries.. I wasn’t rude but I was firm... Anyways, he then started to say that as I was being treated re b12 and vit d etc via the sheet’s results I probably didn’t need the T3... So I then said Funny, as I stated the T3 in March and all the others I started in late June so I had started to feel better before the b12 jabs etc.. His face went blank he went into the room next door to tell the consultant everything (What’s that all about you may as well see the consultant) ... He came back and said see you in 4 months and carry on with the 20mcg... So I said do you realise folk are buying this from abroad over this denial of the drug and they are at risk of over medicating etc etc because you are stripping them of feeling better... How does that make you feel... His answer the drug is too costly and you seem to get more energy from it in the afternoon when you have taken it at 7.30 and it can’t be in your blood stream that long, so something else is giving you the improvement.. GRR... Also, I have had trouble actually getting the T3 from chemists is there an issue?? Have had the chemist say oh that dear stuff ... Tesco’s gave me back my script!!! Any thoughts or hugs appreciated xx Jo
