I did a post earlier called "Follow on from my sisters results" Well the devastating upshot was tonight, she had a major seizure and is now in intensive care. The Consultant thinks it may have been caused by her thyroid condition, we won't know until all the new blood results have come back. When I updated him with what had been going on and the lack of concern by the GP, he just raised his eyebrows. He said that his first reaction when he saw her was "Thyroid and that she was so cold" - Jenny also has Down Syndrome. Her ferritin levels and B12 levels are considered normal by the GP, but if you read my previous post, they are not in my opinion. She is also on the "Dementia pathway"
As a family we have thyroid conditions, B12 deficiency, pernicious anaemia and dementia. So the fact that my poor Jen has gone through this, is unbearable. I just pray she pulls through. But because her heart stopped for 27 minutes, there is likely to be long term damage going forward. Why oh why are GP's so cavalier with our conditions? I am absolutely heartbroken.
