Postscript on my blood results Endo asking my GP to consider taking over prescription. Hospital happy to continue to provide supervision of thyroid function tests and advise regarding dose change.
Endo put me on T3 because there was a clinical need. They could not get my TSH suppressed on levo alone and I felt dreadful. I was investigated for a pituitary adenoma and the MRI scan did show an anomoloy and it was agreed to monitor. This is never mentioned on my hospital visits. Only talk thyroid.
I also had partial thyroidectomy, luckily adenomatous nodule with associated Hashimotos throiditis. I do have an underactive thyroid.
None of GPs in practice supportive. Had to fight to get to Endo. My GP does not understand thyroid issues. Few years ago when T3 prescribed he telephoned me to say did I know how much this was costing? There is absolutely no way he will take over this prescription. I wanted to try some medication for something else and it was on the NICE recommended list. My GP told me well there are NICE guidelines but we adhere to the regional guidelines that are different. I did not get the medication. Thats what I am up against.
Contacted MP. He is not interested because the hospital is not in his constituency.
Have contacted Corbyn, heard nothing and I have wrote to PM. I have contacted my local newspaper. Maybe write to Jeremy Vine? What else can I do?
I am going to have to put up a good fight. Is there some committee at the hospital I could contact? I am not back at Endo until September.
