THE ONE SHOW AND THYROID DISEASE.
I am doing some research into thyroid disorders .
I have been diagnosed with a sub clinical hyperthyroidism , thyroid nodules, non cancerous, and advised to have Radioactive iodine treatment as unable to have carbimazole due to cardiac issues.
I am tempted to go for it as I cannot tolerate feeling ill another day.
Anyway today someone with hypothyroidism asked me if there was any recent research findings to demonstrate that the TSH should never be relied on on its own because it has to be carried out in conjunction withT4 and T3 plus antibody tests and reverse T3.
I further understand that the NHS is very reluctant to do these tests - not just to save money but for other reasons as well, NHS also reluctant to fund the prescribing of T3 preferring to prescribe much less expensive T4 despite it being proven to not help a significant number of patients stoimprove their quality of life and to suffer immenselymto thepointof contemplatig suicide.
Moreover to put drs off further from prescribing T3 a certain pharmaceutical Company has jacked up the price of T3 on the well worn excuse that it is more difficult to manufacture hence more expensive. This despite strong evifence to prove otherwise.
This was all discussed on the ONE SHOW a few days ago. Therefore obviously already in the Public Domain.
Barry Mannilow who has had thyroid cancer was also on the show and listening intently to the discussion.
?Thanks in advance.
