Hi all.... I thought this may happen, but not so quick!! Been on Levo 50 mcg for 5 weeks and bloods were ugh better. But now the Endo has written to GP and just phoned and was very robotic. I don't want a second opinion as the GP was extremely fixed in his viewpoint. Tried to advocate for myself saying I had CKD and the renal consultant had prescribed Levo 50 mcg. he spoke to me as if I was a 5 year old about how he was sure he was very good at diagnosing renal problems bla bla bla....., I said to him I will need to buy my own medication then as I have over 50 symptoms of hypothyroidism to which he replied sternly " No you are going to listen to the endocrinologist and if you do not your TSH will be suppressed and cause damage to your heart and brain". This is a nightmare dealing with thyroid issues without medical assistance. Thanks for listening big hugs. Best wishes Jane xx
