Finally insisted on referral to thyroid specialist after years of being fobbed off by GPs about thyroid issues ("get a fit bit, walk more blah blah"!) Got family history of auto immune conditions and been taking 125mg thyroxine for 15 years and never felt great but latterly felt really crap (now 55). Low mood, low energy, palpitations, sleep apnoea, horrendous weight gain etc etc.
I want to see someone who can look at all the test results (cortisol, adrenals too) and family history and advise thoroughly about diet, lifestyle, nutritional supplements and then finally synthetic medication.
Can anyone recommend good holistic consultants and/or thyroid specialists. I live in Herefordshire but will go anywhere. St Thomas seem to have respected thyroid unit but is that more of a cancer centre?
