I'm most grateful to have found this site and as I new member have already read many useful posts. Thanks to all the people who have taken time to give advice and comment, its so helpful.
I am seeking advice for my wife who was diagnosed Hypothyroid some years ago.
She is on Levothyroxine and has begun experiencing worse symptoms which suggest her current dose is not satisfactory. Her GP ordered the usual NHS blood test and all came back fine. We are not convinced.
Of course we accept the need to go private etc and one of the first things I intend to do is order a private pin prick blood screening, as recommended in many posts here, to get a proper grasp of all the levels. Once we have these, would it be best to take the blood screening result to a private endo or GP to analyse things?
If so, is it any more likely that she might be able to obtain a prescription the T3 (which we suspect she has needed for years) .
I am aware this will all cost a considerable amount but its worth it if it yields better health in the medium and long term for my long suffering wife,
