Private endocrinologist recommendations (London)

I have finally managed to get a referral letter from my GP, and am now looking for a private endocrinologist in the London area (London Bridge/St Thomas's are near me) but willing to travel.

Ideally looking for someone who will take my symptoms seriously and look at the whole picture (B12/Vitamin D/ folate/ferritin levels) and high antibody levels, rather than completely ignoring them and just prescribing Levo.

Many thanks all.

    Email for a list of member recommended endos.

    There is no cure for Hashimoto's which causes 90% of hypothyroidism. Treatment is for the low thyroid levels it causes and in the UK Levothyroxine is the preferred treatment although a private endo may be agreeable to prescribing Liothyronine (T3) or NDT instead. Many people have found that 100% gluten-free diet is helpful in reducing Hashi flares, symptoms and eventually antibodies.

    B12, folate, vitamin D and ferritin are nothing to do with thyroid. Correcting low or deficient levels with supplements will improve general well being and may improve metabolism of thyroid medication. If you post your results and ranges members will advise whether you need to supplement.
