My visit to my GP this morning has verbally confirmed to me - NDT dangerous and he will not prescribe. (purpose of visit was to obtain a referral to private Endo on 27th July). After he studied the British Medical Thyroid most recent documents on the subject - (which he had up on his computer screen for me to read) he says the medical society has concluded resoundedly, that NDT has no clinical evidence and to the contrary, the medical industry, he claimed say it is dangerous. On that basis, he said he would not entertain the idea of prescribing it and added, the quicker it was withdrawn the better. I was blown away actually! He said that the medical society go by TSH and T4 and that if, blood tests show range is normal...then everything is working. He used an analogy of filling up a car with petrol....he explained that when the gauge was full, it showed that there was plenty of petrol in the tank!! I argued that even though the car had a tank of petrol...it still may not drive..or if it did drive..it might drive poorly. In the end we had to agree to disagree. I told him that I was not going to lay down and die and that if I had to buy this drug by going 'underground' then I would. Anyway..he has at least referred me so I can go to the Endocrinologist! My point is this: I am now seriously depressed and could do with some cheering up and spirit lifting from those of you who have suffered the same and are now happily on NDT!! Or..... is this all a figment of my imagination?
