I have wrote to my local conservative MP

I should say I have emailed my local MP who will reply to me in 10 days. I have told her my story and the way the NHS will only test TSH for thyroid patients. I have told her that just testing TSH is not giving the doctor a full picture of the patients thyroid function and they should test TSH, T4 and T3 to get a better idea of how the thyroid is functioning. I will publish her reply on here because I have told her about this site.

Here's hoping she does something to help us.

You may not realise that you can edit any posts or responses you have made here.

HealthUnlocked have produced a simple demonstration of how to do this. You can find this here:

support.healthunlocked.com/...

When you edit the original post in a thread, you will also have the option to add (or remove) a single image. (To replace an image, remove the existing image, then add the new one.) This is the same process as writing a new post:

support.healthunlocked.com/...

I am pointing this out purely to ensure that you know your options. :-)

(If you make extensive changes, it is sometimes helpful to add a comment so that people can see that you have made changes.)

Don't hold your breath waiting for a positive, pro-active reply.

Thousands have written or been to see their MP's, especially about being denied Liothyronine

I have just received an email from my local MPs office asking for more details so she can address this to other ministers in Parliament. I am beyond happy and I am hoping she might actually support our cause.

Here's hoping everyone!

I have just sent her assistant some links for him to show her about the debate in the Scottish Parliament and also ours .... lets hope she does something to help our cause because I think we treated better years ago than now. Doctors then went by symptoms and you were given NDT instead of the artificial Levothyroxine.
