Looking for an Endocrinologist

I am looking for an endocrinologist who is not only prescribing levothyroxine as I cannot tolerate this. I have palpitations, my heart rate goes up to 180 heartbeats a minute and I feel ill and cannot sleep. I have been taking Nutri Thyroid but that does not seem to be the answer, as I now have high blood pressure. Can anyone help? I live in Croydon. My GP just says: keep looking on the internet.

Thyroid UK offer a list of practitioners, with notes on what they will and will not prescribe. Good luck.


Do you have Hashimoto’s also called autoimmune thyroid disease, diagnosed by Raised antibodies

If so are you on strictly gluten free diet ?

Have you had vitamin D, folate, ferritin and B12 tested

These must be at good levels for thyroid hormones

Post results and ranges if you have them

Post your most recent thyroid test results too, members can advise
