Sorry for the questions but I don't know what to do or where to turn to, I've been diagnosed with an under active thyroid for over 15 years and I still have the same horrible symptoms today that I had 15 years ago. I've been on 75mg of levothyroxine. I've been back to my GP numerous times over the years with my ongoing symptoms and all he does is say I'm depressed and anxious and pump me full of anti-depressants ( the recent ones which are used for anorexia to increase appetite, I kid you not I am fuming!) Despite going to the gym 4 times a week and trying to eat a balanced diet I am 6 stone overweight and cannot shift it. I'm back with a psychiatrist now to sort out my anti-depressants as I really think that the symptoms from my thyroid which I dont feel are being treated are causing my depression and anxiety. The GP's in my surgery is worse than useless, one told me that I wouldn't be fat if I stopped eating cakes and exercised more! I really need to feel better and will do anything that it takes.
Sorry for all the questions but you are the most support I've had in the past 15 years
Would you talk to the psychiatrist about my thyroid issues and worries?
Would you take the Alletess Lab food sensitivity test as recommended by Dr Wentz?
Do I need to see an endocrinologist?
Do you think its worth taking the blood test that include the B12 levels or will the 3 test be suffice?
Would you tell your GP that you are going to self medicate?
