This evening i saw a private endo consultant Mr K...As my increased levo reluctantly given by my gp 4 weeks ago with dire warnings of cardiac arrest has had no effect on my symptoms...and also the T3 private bloods i had done range was 3.7 (range from 3.1-6.8)had me question conversion as did a lot of replies here.My gp also reluctantly agreed to an endo but the appointment isnt until april 18th and im fading and due on my honeymoon Tuesday 12th...the last holiday in 2011 was marred by my hypo at its worst so i wanted to be well this time..so we decided despite my being made redundant yesterday the private appointment was justified..
He was lovely listenened and agreed to a trial of T3!!..so yes i have to pay for a private script for now but if this works i will be over the moon as rite now its a boring place of dry dry hair sore shins,dry skin,broken nails and tiredness...so now i know it may make me feel pants id appreciate some feedback as i am ok with adapting and just want to know what to expect.Thanks
