Just wondered about the latest guidelines for T3 prescribing. I’m on T3 after years on T4 with no reduction in symptoms.
My pharmacist says everyone else in my area has had there’s stopped and I’m the only patient getting NHS prescriptions.
Also, re the House of Lords debate, I listened to, or read this a few months ago and was most put out by one woman’s comments. Lady ? said she was perfectly fine on Levothyroxine and didn’t see the need at all for free prescriptions if you have thyroid disease.
It was just a passing comment on her part but showed zero understanding of, or empathy for, the thousands of patients struggling with a multitude of symptoms. Many of whom will also be on a reduced income. Seeing the inept way things get handled in NHS parliamentary debates, don’t be surprised if free prescription provision for thyroid patients is soon up for discussion.
