recently one of the gps at the practice suggested that i was not on enough thyroxine ( 37.5 per day) , she advised that i have thyroid checked and if tsh above 3 then should increase to 50s.. this is in agreement with what i have read on here plus other sources. i have not spoken to the gp before as she is new but my regular registered one was off that day.
my result came back tsh 3.4 ( 0.5 - 5.5) t4 not checked. my regular gp said hes happy with result as "in normal range" and no further action is needed and does not see why the other gp thought it needed increasing.
i'm already aware that most of you will say it def needs increasing but what do i do if my actual registered gp does not agree ? after all, its only a small incease . am i entitled to sayi want to be increased or is it solely up to my gp?
many thanks !!
