I have just returned home and I want to point out that liothyronine (T3) may not be the saviour for some people as we are all so different in what our bodies like or don't like.
Some prefer Natural Dessicated Thyroid Hormones - if they can be sourced as they're now withdrawn from the NHS. WHY?
Some benefit with a T4/T3 combination and some on T3 alone. So it is trial and error and don't build up hopes too soon.
I took to T3 like duck to water. For me levo (T4) caused terrible palpitations and even the cardiologist couldn't figure out why! When I stopped T4 palps disappeared.
Following and reading Dr John Lowe's site/method did the trick for me.
I believe that Dr Skinner and Dr Peatfield also prescribed options if person not improving on levo. Unfortunately, both doctors were then pursued as if they were criminals and caused Dr Peatfield to resign his Licence but he still could advise but, after treating many peopled it must have been difficult for him.
Dr Peatfield was very kind indeed and concerned about the patients suffering.
Dr S. appeared before the GMC a number of times but it certainly wasn't his patients who complained as they travelled from all areas in the UK to consult. He had many followers worldwide.
When his staff are able to publish their research that they collated after Dr Skinner's death they said it is hopeful that it would also change the attitudes of the BTA et al.
