Hi. I am seeing my GP tomorrow (Monday 22 Oct 28). I switched from Levothyroxine 2 months ago after requesting this via a private Endocrinologist that is also working for NHS. This has improved my health. I was thinking of asking my GP if he could prescribe me NDT on a named patient basis. As I need T3 as previous blood tests showed I wasn’t converting from T4 well. TSH was 0.22 ( 0.35 -5.50). My T4 was 13.6 (7.86 - 14.41) and my T3 was 3.9 (3.7 - 6.0). They won’t entertain T3 as too expensive. I don’t have many more T3 blood results as they are very reluctant to do it in Chester area
Has anyone else been successful in getting NDT on named patient basis please under special needs of a patient requirement.
I’ve lost my job after being so unwell the past 6 months and really can’t afford private prescription and medication now. Just a thought?
Thanks and kindest regards
