NHS England Liothyronine (T3) Consultation last day today
The consultation closes tomorrow so if you have not already done so please complete the consultation.
Pamela0106 has kindly written a guide to help you complete the survey docs.google.com/document/d/...
Have done so Clutter but having read some notification from the BTA (in Facebook, i think, yesterday) I do not feel very confident about the outcome. BTA were saying they did not get many responses for need of liothyronine... Very odd indeed! I think everything has been decided a long time ago and will not change...
Incidentally should the decision be reversed I hope patients who never had the chance to try T3 but are still "dragging themselves" on levo will be given the chance of evaluating if T3 improves their health and quality of life.
The BtF claimed they hadn’t heard much from patients on the matter but it doesn’t mean the NHS haven’t via the consultation itself.
I think from the posts on BtF a lot of people have lost faith in them which explains why patients wouldn’t have been actively contacting them to represent them on the matter of T3.
Also I’d suggest the BTF should have been actively opposing T3 Withdrawal from the beginning and not waiting until now to mention it x
Agree with you, and probably many other people, the BTF have not exactly been proactive in the support for use of Liothyronine.... while so many patients are left struggling and having no quality of life at all because of inadequate treatment for hypothyroidism. x
As they follow the BTA stance which states its preferred therapy is Levothyoxine I'm not surprised.
Completed and submitted - thank you!
Completed and submitted.
Fingers crossed everyone fills it in with time to spare 🤞🏼😍 xxx
4 hours 30 mins to 21st October. They'd better crack on with it if they're going to.
It’s still open now xx I’m assuming it’s midnight tonight it closes. Who knows x
I was playing safe
Haha I like your thinking 😂
Thyroid UK has seen a response from NHS England in regard to the question of whether T3 has already been de-prescribed...
