I have just been to see my GP and told him that I am giving myself a trial of NDT. He didn't seem to react and when he was filling in a blood test request on the computer asked me how much thyroxine I was on. I repeated that I was taking NDT and had stopped taking thyroxine. He didn't know what it was and asked me if it was herbal. I was completely amazed that he didn't know what I was talking about. Surely I can't be the first person in the surgery to ever mention NDT?
I had been very nervous about telling my doctor and thought I might be given a lecture, drummed out of the practice or something. I was wondering whether anyone else told their GP only to find that their GP had not heard of NDT?
