I have seen a local NHS endocrinologist who still holds on to the belief that autoimmune thyroid disease cannot be reversed and that the only treatment is to increase levothyroxine to lower TSH and it doesn't matter how high the dose is as long as the TSH isn't suppressed. He didn't test my T3 [which, when done at my surgery is 2.2 pmol/L and decreasing], antibodies or reverse T3. He is quite happy for me to fund my own T3 containing medication and will prescribe it privately. Considering that it is T3 and not T4 levels that depress TSH, and it appears that I may have a conversion problem, his protocol will never work and he is doing all his NHS patients a gross disservice.
I would like to find an endocrinologist who works for the NHS in the Sussex area who is willing to prescribe T3 containing medications please.
