I have today been to my GP after having an appt with the endo consultant a couple of months ago. She gave me a copy of the the letter the endo wrote to her.. in this she states that I am over medicated as my TSH is 0.001 my t4 20 and my T3 3.39. As I have been feeling very tired and achey I was annoyed and told my GP that I did not want to reduce my dose of thyroxin . I asked her why they could not test to see if I was converting properly. she said the NHS does not do that. She has said she will not reduce the dose as long as I take on board the risks which she says could be osteoporosis atrial fibrillation and heart disease. MY pulse is 60 and I have put on a few pounds recently so I don't see how I am over medicated. However I would like your thoughts on this.
