?Just need to share with you a post on THYROID UK Facebook page from 19th October. It was THYROID AWARENESS WEEK last week and the article has been very informative to me. It says that Natural Dessicated Thyroid can be prescribed on the NHS in the UK for people like me that can't take the synthetic Thyroxine. I thought it was only available in the USA.
?I have been waiting for an appointment with a specialist for 5 months and have just today managed to get one in 3 months time.
?I have been borderline UAT for many tears and using VIts/Minerals,Kelp and Diet to control it. The last couple of blood tests have been over borderline,hence my GP sending me to a specialist. I have virtaully no symptoms of UAT.
?My latest blood test last week has just come back returning to borderline again, but strangely something in this article said it can make a difference what time of day you have the blood taken and if it is a fasting test like I had last time . This latest one was just before lunch.
?I don't think I am UAT and don't want to take Throxine for life with the side effects that people complain of on this forum.I am fit and healthy, exercise regularily and eat well and don't want all of that to change.
If the Endocronologist thinks I need it and I can get NDT prescribed though, then I would definately try it..
