This paper by Eric Pritchard M.Sc. (published 24 Jun2 2013) proves that doctors who are denying the active hormone T3 to patients who need it – are practising outside of their scope. This is not only medical negligence, it is criminal negligence.

A most interesting article that goes back to 2013. However, when you try to click on the link for the unabridged version, it is no longer available, which is a bit of a shame...

Update - a member clicked on Follow this Post; which in turn alerted me back to it. Thank you... as I have a dreaded endo appointment mid September, to get my 6 months prescription of T3, already I'm getting stressed over it, and had forgotten this TPAUK medical negligence paper. Will print it out and take copies with me.
