Functional medicine practitioner


I have Hashimotos and a sub sternal goitre, currently on 100mcg of levothyroxine (this has been reduced twice by GP from 150 mcg because of suppressed TSH).

Because of the lack of knowledge by GPS and my endo I am interested in going down the functional medicine route. Have any of you ladies gone down this route? If so, what success have you had?

Lastly, can anyone recommend a functional medical practitioner in the West Yorkshire area, preferably near Leeds.

Many thanks,

Why on earth is your Gp or endo got the jitters about TSH

the only thing that matters is free t4 and free t3

assume you ensure that your test is early morning and fasting and you have not taken your levo in the previous 24hours
