Hi fellow Hypothyroid Sufferers!
I had my first appointment with the endocrinologist today! I was referred about 2 and a half years ago, but until today I kept getting fobbed off with the 'members of the endocrine team' who tended not to be specialist in Thyroid issues and very similar to the GP in knowledge on this subject. The appointment went well with the Endo actually listening, and having viewed my blood test results, agreed that I do not convert T4 into T3 efficiently. Unfortunately however, due to NHS financial constraints, T3 is not available to new patients! Had I seen the endocrinologist sooner, then not only would I have been treated sooner, but no doubt, I would not now be classed as a new patient!
Anyway, on the bright side, it appears it is T3 I need and the Endo has told me to start with 10mcg of T3 and reduce my Levothyroxine from 100mcg down to 50mcg per day. Although I have to buy it myself, the hospital will monitor me. I was advised to buy Henning Thybon. I have tried to find it on the internet without any success. Does anyone know where I can buy it from a trusted source? If so please can you send me Personal Message?
Thanks in anticipation xx
