Hi thanks for your reply iv made the results so you can see them better in the post.

My doctors don't test free t3 my Haemoglobin A1c is all they tested for the diabetes, 6 months ago it was 42 and now it's 43 but I have noticed that who ever at my doctors who reads the tests results reads them as if you have no illness so I always go in and question the results after tests it just puzzles me how they can treat everyone the same without looking at there medical records

Interesting advice on stomach acid I’ve taken similar medication for 14 years and worry about the effect of vitamin absorption, I’ll suggest the alternative to gp. Never heard of the possibility of low acid! Thanks

GP is well rewarded for prescribing PPI's and I doubt he will have heard of Betaine HCL. Low acid is often discussed here on the forum - you could pop it into the Search Facilty to read more ...
