Hi All consultants, apart from surgeons are consultant physician and their own speciality,You will always find it in their letter heading. It is why it is always better to see a consultant physician...... than a surgeon, who does not have the sane general medical knowledge.If the endo knows you have a problem ,it should be OK.If TSH that high you certainly need T3 or something like armour with T3 in it. T3 is fairly recent and endos are especially keen on it. My endo uses Levo + T3 ( separate) if that suites, if not armour, ( I also have a little T3 as very .low FT3 )If that no good she uses just T3, She tests for everything connected to thyroid disease. as all good endos should, first visit and as needed. I would make sure you have the GP letter from your endo after the last consultation , also all the blood tests he did( with ranges). If you have not had them automatically, then phone the endo`s secretary.You are entitled to them.
Also next time take a list to use to remind you of everything you want to say.
I hope that helps. Send me PM anytime, if you want to.( Click on my name)
