Dear friends of Thyroid UK,
I would be very grateful once again for some advice and guidance
I went to see my GP who spent 25 minutes with me discussing the results of my blood test very in depth listen to everything I had to say.
I think this was helped by the fact that he had a newly qualified doctor with him so very patient with me as a patient The Dr to prescribe statins I am very much against statins at the moment I don’t feel I am ready just to accept his diagnosis from what I’ve learnt from this forum, my blood pressure is normal, there is no history in the family of heart disease, I am fit & very active until I hit that fog & the wall ( you all know what I am talking about here) I have about 7 pound I could lose I follow a healthy diet I am not coeliac but I have Hashimoto’s. My Cholesterol is elevated at 6 & my liver function is also elevated
The doctor has agreed to send me to see an endocrinologist through the NHS I have the appointment in October. so I would like to go with some more knowledge to discuss then
I am on 75 mcg of Levo. I supplement with 15 Livo.
