I have waited over a month for my appointment with endo and boy, what a waste of everyone's time! I came out and felt very upset indeed. I guess I'm not surprised, but the level of rudeness and arrogance was a real shock.
Apparently 10,000iu of vit D3 per day is extremely dangerous. I HAVE to stop it NOW! He implied that I was doing myself real damage taking that amount.
According to him all of my symptoms are due to low levels of iron - (even though I have had low iron levels all my life. Why didnt my hair fall out before? I dont know he said.)
Hair loss, tiredness, insomnia, joint pain, TED everything. I then asked if selenium was worth taking. He said yes!
I asked about my extremely high antibody levels. He said it was of no consequence what so ever. He said that they normally don't even test for antibodies!
He also said I am on too high a dose of thyroxine! He is writing to my dr. God! now I will have to convince gp not to reduce my meds. Im done with NHS endos!!! I wanted to ask if he would consider giving me T3, but I thought better of it. I think its a disgrace that they wont even listen or consider how we feel.
Ok rant over!
