I made an appointment to revisit my diabetic specialist, he didn’t really believe in alternative therapies so when I mentioned I believed I had a thyroid problem he laughed and said I needed to come to terms with my diabetes.
As I was a private patient I insisted on some blood tests to see if the iridologist was correct, my specialist agreed to do them but said he would eat his hat if I had a thyroid problem !!!
That evening the specialist called me at my home to say he was eating his hat as he spoke to me … I had a severe under active thyroid ‘myxoedema’ and should start Thyroxine therapy that evening and to come to the hospital to collect my prescription!!
I started on a high dose 150 micrograms straight away …
