I was recntly sent to see an obisity Doctor, who like me was a little confussed as to why i was sent to him.
YES i am over weight, but i am on a lot of weight gain medications forr diffrent medical problems, tha also cause loss of apititie and nausea.
I do not eat a lot at all on good days i eat child size portionsand lots of times i eatt nothing to a few mouthfuls. enought to hold down my meds only.
The Specialist was concerened and said i needed to be eating more protien and Vegtables and also suggessted To my GP that i was prescribed a regular Multi Vitamin and thiamine.
When i saw my GP she refused to prescribe me them, telling me i just needed to lose weight and it didnt matter i dont eat much.
The Specialist excplained in his letter that my weight was duue to family genitics and medicastions i am on, Yet the GP didnt seem to care.
Can a GP refuse to give you meds that a Specialist is suggesting you take?
Also this specialist picked up on something else, that i was not breathing to well due to the way i sit in my wheelchair, because of my spine, despite the fact i have requested to see a back specialist for many years. I have had my requests ignored. and my back has got worse. Can a GP refuse to refer you to a specialist ifyou ask to be seen by one? I was diagnosed with low bone desity 8 years ago in my lower spine and suffered serve pain in my back for many years and all i get is pain meds which i rather not be on.
Thank you for your time
