Just want to say that yet again another gp has come up trumps in showing their total lack of knowledge regarding thyroid issues.
My gp phoned me to tell me my t3 is 'just' out of range by one point ( *plasma free thiiodothyronine level (XaERT) 4.2pmol/L (4.3-6.8) ) . She then went on to say this is so small it won't effect your health as your tsh is in range *TSH 3.79 ( 0.34-5.6) and I don't feel I need to increase your levo.
I asked if she could prescribe anything to help my t3 to which she replied oh no that is a specialist medication and you need to see an endocrinologist and I'd need to refer you.
I suggested she took a look at my records and then maybe she would see I'm already under an endo who I'm due to see soon ( fingers crossed they listen to me)
Thank god for this forum otherwise we would all just be listening to doctors who have no knowledge when it comes to treating the thyroid.
There rant over !
