I've just finished listening and it was a very good debate. I don't know the name of the last speaker but obviously she isn't hypo and may not know anyone who is and more or less said we shouldn't self-medicate as it could be dangerous (or words to that effect). She doesn't realise we do so out of desperation. The Minister before her did speak, and he had received an email from a relative whose thyroid gland was removed some years ago (maybe 4 not sure) and she's texted him (I think just before the debate) that she was on 400mcg of levothyroxine all that time, and then GP reduced, and reduced and now he's told her she doesn't need levo AT ALL. He said she is extremely ill. He will probably look into the matter and Elaine Smith, MP is hypo herself, so slow but sure steps hopefully. The problem is they quoted the BTA etc etc and I doubt the MP knows most on this forum know far more about suffering than they do especially by stating that levothyroxine is the hormone of choice - they're choice not ours.
I'd still be ill as many on this forum would be if we didn't research search and some lucky enough to see knowledgeable, sympathetic doctors (few are around these days as most have retired) and alternative to T4. It's all very well saying that the BTA and doctors know best - little does she know and she doesn't realise it isn't dangerous as it is hormones. If we took a double dose by mistake, we'd definitely not do that again.
