My mother is suffering very badly from hip pain and following test has been told she does not have arthritis and does not need a hip replacement (she is 81), she does have have osteoporosis in her spine though.
She is Hypothyroid like me and her Gp reduced her levo does after a TSH test showed 0.07. Another test recently showed a TSH of 9.9 and they have upped the dose to 100mcg again.
I think she should try NDT but I think she would be nervous doing it by herself so I am looking for a doctor/naturopath/specialist who could guide her through switching and test for other issues. The list from ThyroidUK does not show anyone in warwickshire or gloucestershire (they are on the edge of the two between Stratford-upon-avon and Chipping Campden). Perhaps London is the only answer but I thought i'd ask if anyone had knowledge of someone else.
