Ask a Doctor and Get an Answer to Your Medical Question ASAP
Good morning, I am Dr Elliot. Thank you for your question
Weight I appreciate is a very difficult thing and is rather complex in addressing. What have you done to date to lose weight?
Okay thank you. Have you had any blood tests to investigate any underlying causes such as hypothyroidism?
So your GP should be able to take phone calls but yes non urgent blood tests are still unfortunately on hold
I would contact them to start arranging some blood tests first to exclude an underlying cause. They would then also be able to refer you to some of the weight loss services within the NHS as it requires more of a team approach given the difficulties in losing weight
Good morning, Please could you kindly rate my response, this is the only way I am credited for responding to questions, it means I can also close this question, many thanks, ***** *****
