Is it time to go back to my gp
I have now been on NDT for over 18months the first year was amazing the difference in how I felt was unbelievable.
However over the last month or so I have developed all over itching and it’s driving me mad!
My gp does not know I am on NDT although I had expected to hear from them as I have not filled my Levo prescription for well over a year!
I am starting to wonder if I should give Levo a go again and maybe just request a different brand? (Previously on Levo 100mcg was tired all the time cold, weight gain, it was as if it just wasn’t working)
I am worried when I tell my gp that they will be angry and therefore unsympathetic.
I am 62 and very overweight and all to often that’s all they can see it took me years for them to take my symptoms seriously. Very much a case of “she’s fat she must be overeating and lazy and probably diabetic! I was put on antidepressants and tested numerous times for diabetes before finally getting them to listen.
On 2 occasions I have been referred to an endocrinologist and what a total waste of time that was.
I have been self medicating NDT (with the help of this amazing site) and was on 3 tablets daily.
Sorry for the ramble and thank you for reading
