Hiya Flower

 

I think if you posted your story on the Yahoo groups I visit as well as here you might find your years of treatment on thyroxine only have probably kept you in a state of hypothyroidism and you have got gradually worse too due to your adrenals not being attended to properly. I feel that you not only need help with your adrenal glands but also proper help with your thyroid problem because one definately causes problems with the other.

Just my opinion hon. NHS endos are not generally any good at connecting the dots with these problems and how they are connected.

 

Take care flower

hi dawn thanks for the reply i agree that my hypothyroidisim has not been controled with meds i am now on 200mg levothyroxine per day and have been for ten years (when all problems started) they said they wont increase as it puts a strain on the heart even though i show under

i am on my way to BARTS LONDON in a few weeks i have been once they took bloods and i will get the results when i go back for my consultation if they cant find out who can? i had to push the NHS to get a referal as here they havent a clue dont even know how to test right its a long way to go but it might be worth it fingers crossed lol take care jo x
