Just been for my appointment.
Doctor refuses to treat for hypo as my TSH is 3.4 which is 'tickety boo'. I mentioned if I was in America I'd be treated over 2.5 & that my last test was over 4. But to give me even a small dose of levo would be more detrimental to my health than living the way I am now.
I broke down, I'm still in tears now! It's not like me at all. She's said she'll do them again in 3 months & we can discuss HRT. I had to agree but told her that I'm convinced it my thyroid & not menopause.
She tried to be understanding & said 'I really want to help & I can see how it's affecting you but I can't give you levo knowing it will damage your long term health. I really do feel for you & im sure when I reach that age I'll feel as bad as you'.
Any advice where I go from here please?
Feel free to PM me. Thank you, I'm feeling so fed up now.
