Thankyou for replies

Hi everyone. To all the people who answered my query a very big Thankyou. I have contacted my GP and put all my concerns in a letter, especially the fact that I feel so unwell and the only blood test I had was a year ago which diagnosed me with Hypothyroidism. After 3 months of being on 25mg and still feeling so unwell, I rang him and I said do you think this dose needs to be increased. He said oh yes we can do that and wrote a prescription for 50mg without another blood test. Seems so wrong and I really do feel it is lack of knowledge.

You are correct, they seem to me to be very poorly trained. Considering it is thyroid hormones keep us alive running our whole metabolism.

Hi, put the letter in a week ago. Still nothing from GP. I suppose the next step is writing to the Practice Manager and changing my Doctor.

Because they have been so brainwashed that the TSH is the 'be all and 'end all' (maybe the end of us at times) we remain undiagnosed/undertreated/nuisances/ and we think we know better than most Professionals. Which we definitely now do.
