So after waiting nine weeks to see an endocrinologist I saw him today.
He said the GP had said in the notes that I wanted some reassurance that my results were within range,which wasn't the case at all I had asked to see him as my dose has been dropped and put up several times.Last Gp put dose up to 175mcg as Tsh was 0.05 but ft4 was 9.
Then next Gp dropped it to 150 mcg and wanted to drop my dose again as my TSH was 0.35 but my free T4 was 14 range (9-19).
Anyway endo told me that testing ft4 and ft3 was outdated and that as long as Tsh was in range it didn't matter.And Tsh was fine so to stick at that dose.I said what about my symptoms that still hadn't been relieved with thyroxine he said "like what"? so I told him "low heart rate,aching limbs,breathlessness,tiredness,low sex drive can't pinch the skin on my arms can't lose weight he said all those things weren't thyroid related as thyroid fine.I asked what was the point in testing ft4 and ft3 if they were useless tests outdated tests as he put it.
In the end he said some people will never lose weight but what I will promise you is that I will keep your Tsh within range.And your heart rate of averaging 51 was due to the fact I was very fit.He told me they would do blood tests today see what Tsh was I told him not to bother.With my 7 year old shouting through the waiting room "Why is he bloody useless Mum? On wards and upwards eh!!
