Can anyone recommend a good endo

Hi this my first post.

I have been seeing an endo in Ayr who has now labelled my symptons as dysfunctional and says everythings down to depression and anxiety!

Can anyone recommend a good endo near me please. I live in Irvine Ayrshire but would be willing to travel.

Also I was on 50mg Levo and recently I asked him to give me T3 which he did (only to get rid of me I think) I got 20mcg of t3 but they won't give me Levo with it. Should I not be taking both?

Welcome to the forum, St12.

20mcg T3 is equivalent to 60mcg Levothyroxine so you are on a pretty much equivalent dose. Your endo could have reduced 50mcg Levothyroxine dose and added 5mcg or 10mcg T3.

Email enquiries@thyroiduk.org for a list of member recommended endocrinologists.
