I’m looking for some help; I was diagnosed with an underactive thyroid about 14 years ago. We have struggled with fertility issues and found that we had little help from our GP.... it my weight.... we’ll do something when your thyroid stabilises.... promises of endocrinology referrals that never appeared etc etc.
So after years of discussions, earlier this year we made the decision to be apply to become adoptive parents.
We have passed stage 1 (reference checks etc) however they asked that we take time out to focus on my medical issues- the social Worker believed that if I just took my meds for three months I’d suddenly be thin and fixed.
Has anyone else been through this or faced this challenge? If so how did you evidence that you thyroid is managed? I have since been referred to endocrinology and am now on T3. When the Social Worker ‘advised’ us to take this break she said “We would advise anyone with a medical condition under review in this manner to withdraw from the process until the situation is settled and clear”, yet my thyroid and medication is under constant review.
Any help would be great!
