Dilemma: Doubt over thyroxine prescription
29 October 2013
A newly registered patient asks you to renew her prescription for thyroxine, but you notice it was started without a diagnosis of hypothyroidism. What do you do?
The late Dr David Lewis and Thyroid UK were asked to write for this article. They duly did. Time was against Dr Lewis yet still he gave this his all, as he did with everything that interested him. Pulse instead chose to publish this travesty instead. You can join free to comment. I did.
- Lorraine Cleaver | 01 November 2013 7:38pmDr David Lewis died shortly after writing his piece for you Pulse. In life, he was a leader, innovator and one of the most humane doctors this country has ever employed. In death, he remains inspirational and leaves the alive box tickers truly in the shadows. When you all catch up on how to actually treat illness, a separate thing from medicating symptoms, you will see that Dr Lewis was right all along, about thyroid and B12 diagnosis and treatment.
