Dear Mrs *******
Thank you for your emails dated 3 February 2018 and 9 February 2018 regarding the withdrawal of your prescriptions. Firstly, I am sorry to learn of your experience and for the distress this has caused you. I asked my colleagues in the Medicine Management team to look into your further concerns in relation to your medication and I am sorry to inform you that their view remains the same as detailed in my previous correspondence with you on this matter. Both Armour Thyroid and Liothyronine are lacking in clinical evidence. Therefore, GPs can make a decision not to prescribe these in such circumstances and the CCG will support this decision. It may be that your Endocrinologist, will agree to prescribe these medicines for you if they think that this is the best option for you and are comfortable in doing so. At this stage, as within my last letter to you dated 29 June 2017, the CCG has answered all your issues on this matter and you do have the option to contact the Ombudsman on their helpline on 0345 015 4033 or you can complete their online form at ombudsman.org.uk/make-acomp... Yours sincerely Tricia D’Orsi Chief Nurse
NOW MY REPLY TO THEM..
Thankyou so much for your reply.
I am not shooting the messenger here MRS *****
However i have never seen such utter rubbish and such a poor excuse to justify the withdrawal of specific thyroid hormones. I would like to tell the medical team who i presume are fit and healthy and have no need for thyroid meds in order to function that they are completely closed off and in denial.
I would like to educate these people- SOME people have faulty genes, some people have methylation probs andfor what ever reason are unable to convert levothyroxine ( THE INACTIVE hormone into Liothyronine T3 which is the ACTIVE THYROID HORMONE--with in their body- this conversion takes
place in the body but we are NOT clones. Those who can’t convert t4 into t3 HAVE TO HAVE IT IN TABLET FORM. We who need it , take it to function. Without this i DO NOT FUNCTION and can have
heart attacks and strokes. The reason it has been withdrawn is because one time it cost NHS £5 a pot now the greed of pharmeceuitcal charge £236 a pot!
This is the reason why it is withdrawn after all this time so to justify that they say it has no medical evidence what utter rubbish and how disgraceful. Armour was used before synethetic and on thyroid charity forums the proof of well being is there. Now we are doomed to a slow death! I will however leave a note on my WILL for the reason of death.
