    I count myself as fortunate in that I had no trouble in getting diagnosed, my TSH played ball at >150. It's the treatment, that t4 is all you need is what I have issue with.

    The only endo I have seen is one I have paid for. !!!!in' useless. I emailed him with some info, He said he would write to my GP explaining it's significance...... has he bothered no.


    Still waiting to see an NHS endo.... 5 months after referral was made.

    Edit Hey whats wrong with !!!!?

    I am just wondering how long do I have to shut up for to drop down to a sensible 6th or 7th place?
    Or do I delete about a hundred very old posts that are no longer relevant ...
    There are people on this list I am sure are around much more than I am.

    M lists - page 18 (on 40 posts per page setting) - Avs M: post 705-708 inclusive; Tvs M and "Buy in M": post 708 onwards.

    3Dogs' lists - page 6, posts 210-214.

    Yeah, that blasted word "normal" scrape into the reference range your "normal" your symptoms are not thyroid related. They seem have lost the concept of individuality and being optimal for that person. Free t3 below range according to my GP "doesn't matter" err thats the active hormone!

    Fed up of the amount of times I have been offered anti depressant. So based exactly on what I say, they are prepared to write a prescription for something that is generally no better than a sugar pill, can come with increase risk of suicide, alters brain chemistry and can take years to come off of. Yet a blood test proves I have low ft3 and they won't give me what I need Mind boggling!

It was a new lightweight bath called a hippobath, was supposed to be crack proof. Guess what, it cracked, took me ages to persuade a new bath out of the suppliers (the manufacturers went bust), and the bathroom was never the same either.

    My new sink cracked but I spotted it before the fitter left. New sink was ordered and fitted without any problems. However a few months later I discovered my cream fragranite sink was stained and the stains won't come off. I would never recommend a cream sink to anyone

    Didn't realise how local they were to us when we ordered the bath taps but they do deliver nationwide.
