Hi, I'm hoping for some help. I was a member of a thyroid forum some years ago which was very helpful in giving me the info I needed to persuade an endo to give me T3.
I forget how many years I've been on it, it's so long! I had no idea of the current situation until I got a letter out of the blue basically referring me back to a specialist but saying it is highly unlikely I will be prescribed it any more.
T3 has made a huge difference for me and I dread going back to how I was. I'm struggling with my mental health as it is having lost my husband 2 years ago after a very long fight with cancer.
I had no idea how much the price of T3 has gone up since I was first prescribed it and assume this is merely a cost cutting exercise which patients will suffer. How I wish the government would reign in big pharma!
I would appreciate any advice as to how to proceed with this and would also appreciate any private messages to let me know of safe online suppliers.
I'm in Scotland. I'm 51, had Graves disease in my early 20s treated with tablets then my thyroid went underactive in my late 30s. It's probably been 10 years that I've been on 150 T4 and 20 T3 per day. My original Endo, who trained under Dr Tofts is no longer with us so I'm dreading the outcome of this.
Any help gratefully received, thanks in advance x
