More news on my Mum :-)

Please read my previous blog on my fight for increase in Thyroxine for my obviously under medicated Mum. Well thanks to this forum my Dad read Dr S's book and fought for her as her health is so poor. At 76 years young the GP actually thought he was a retired GP lol :-). Anyway she has her increase after his rebuttal and my letter. She is mentally clearer after a month but actually taking advise from me which she wouldn't entertain weeks ago. She is taking Vit D as her joint and muscle pains are crippling her. Her GP said they don't test Vit D wtf !!!. Also got her to take B12. She now talks about seeing Dr Skinner which weeks ago we daren't mention. How she was allowed to get in this state God only knows but thanks to you all giving me advice when I started on this journey with myself,me and my Dad have gathered the knowledge to get her well. You are all wonderful thank you and I will keep you all updated xx

  • Well done for getting through to your Mum and for your Dad getting through to GP, we all know how hard that one is. I am trying to impart what information I have learn't to my husband, who has had some bad blood results lately (not thyroid related), but he has said he will not listen to information I give him - oh well, he will learn, but hopefully before it is too late. Wish you all well. Janet.
