We’re off to northern France (Caen area) for a wedding next month, and as I speak French it occured to me that I could book a private appointment with a doctor/ Endocrinologist there to get myself a legit prescription for T3 (my GP being as stubborn as me!).
This I could then get fulfilled immediately in France, and get a repeat prescription to use in future to email to the legal pharmacies in France or Germany that ship to the UK with prescription only.
I was thinking I could take over brand new blood test results - as well as historic printouts - to back up my argument.
Is the French healthcare more open-minded than ours with regard to thyroid treatment?
And how can I be sure to find a T3-sympathetic doctor or Endocrinologist in France/ Europe?
Has anyone explored this kind of medical tourism, and is it even possible?
We’re driving through Switzerland in the summer, so I could also try and find a suitable doctor there (though France would be easier as we’re staying in one area).
If there were a knowledgable thyroid doctor in Calais or Paris for example, I imagine many Brits would make a regular pilgrimage out there for a T3 prescription. Is this happening at all, or is it simply not possible?
Any hints or tips gratefully received,
