Hi Last week I had an appointment with my endo. It was a good appointment as she listenened to what I said and fully accepted that T3 was very helpful for me .
I explained before and after symptoms which she agreed were worth using the lio for.
She explained about the massive cost and that she would be unable to prescribe as NHS had ‘red flagged’ it. However told me where I could obtain without script, and that she will write to my GP to support his willingness to follow up and test FT3 etc.
I have already been using it anyway so I’m used to that.
BUT, she is involved in research at the teaching hospital and said that when they test T3 on animals it shows no effect !! and a doctor she respects very much in the field of endocrinology thinks that there is no more than 5% of patients who can’t manage on T4 alone.
Wondered what anyone’s thoughts were on this.
