Hi everyone, I am in Adelaide Australia and have had an under active thyroid for 15 years managed very well until recent surgery. TSH has now dropped dramatically although T4 normal, no T3 results. Unfortunately my GP retired and I am not confident the new GP understands the complexity of hypothyroidism. I have been to see two different doctors who specialise in thyroid disorders. One said to keep taking an increased dosage of thyroxin the other says he can fix me by giving me bio identical hormones (HRT) and putting me on a metabolic diet. I'm not happy with either of those solutions. I am going to ask my GP for yet another referral to an endocrinologist. I am curious as to whom other people have found most useful? I find the doctors I have seen have a narrow focus whereas I believe I need someone who can see the whole picture. For example no one has ever suggested there could be a link between vitamin D and thyroid or adrenal fatigue and thyroid. Any feedback greatly appreciated.
