I am soooo angry and need to get this off my chest.
After nearly 5 years of this thyroid journey starting with the usual T4 medication which made me very ill (I would like to add that I had clearly had thyroid issues for many years beforehand and hadn't been diagnosed), I ended up seeing Dr P and ordering T3 online.
This worried my family and eventually after ordering for a couple of years and not being properly monitored, I got a referral from the GP to see a consultant endocrinologist. He said that I must only take T3 and wrote to my doctor to that effect.
I have since seen my GP and he clearly doesn't approve but I have asked for the T3 to be presribed. He said he would check with the CCG but that he was only asking because I have the fault DI02 gene.
I have found out today that they haven't approved the prescribing of T3 and now I look an idiot because I said Id take it to my Primary Care Trust, obviously now realising they are the same as the CCG.
What do I do? Im fed up ordering it online and not being monitored.
