So have you all contacted the show and the BBC to air your views and give them this information?
Don't just tell us we know....we are living it!
Contact one person a day, one organisation a day, one doctors surgery a day and people with LEVERAGE to get the matter out there, discussed and addressed.
Has everyone printed off the new Thyroid Association guidelines re use of and contined use of T3 and insisted it is attached to your notes? and a copy for the doctors staff room?
There are less than 9000 GP practices. Have you done yours? ( before you ask, yes I have)
It is VERY GOOD that it is getting mainstream coverage. It's no wonder Adrian Childs sounded less than expert! It's a complicated subject....what did you expect!?
BUT I thought he did ask some B****y good questions and he did let the Doc explain, I thought quite well for a long while,
Perhaps if the patient had been a bit sharper and clued up she could have interjected with some more useful points. She seemed just focussed on her and not the bigger picture.
IT IS SUPREMELY GOOD THAT THE CCG DOCTOR RE-ITERATED THAT THEY ARE NOT STOPPING GP'S FROM PRESCRIBING T3. You don't need an Endo you need to go work on a decent GP.
I wouldn't have known about this Radio interview unless my boss told me he listened to it in the car and he wouldn't have cactively listened to it if I hadn't already bored him with the story.
