Has anyone heard of the Trent Thyroid Follow Up Scheme. After the endo sent my case back to my doctor l received a letter from the scheme after about 6 months to check that my condition was still 'satisfactory'. I was asked to have a blood test at my surgery for tsh. l have since received a letter stating they have done a clinical and biochemical assessment and my condition is still satisfactory and will write to me again in 6 months. My last tsh result before this test was 2.1 and my doctor put my levo up by another 25mcg to 125mcg. My doctor seems to understand that l need him to treat my ongoing symptoms and not rely on tsh results alone.l am worried that the follow up scheme can make an assessment without seeing or at least speaking to me.
