I am currently taking 25mcg of T3. It has taken a long time for me to reach this dose as originally I could not tolerate thyroid hormone which Dr P thought was most probably due to my receptors becoming very blunted as I have been left untreated for years. I had to start by crushing 6.25mcg in a glass of water and sip slowly throughout the day and build up very slowly. From last week I now manage to take T3 crushed but without water. Two months on and I now take 12.5mcg at about 6.30am, 6.25mcg at about 10.30am/11ish and another 6.25mcg at about 3pm ish. I know I am still very under medicated and feel I need an increase but am not sure exactly where to add in another 6.25mcg? Any suggestions guys?
Also my GP has referred me to an endo in a hospital of my choice (suggested by someone on here) but he has written to me and would like me to go for some blood tests the week before I see him in June. This would mean I have to stop the nutri adrenals I take (I have started to reduce them already four down to two) as amongst the tests are adrenal hormone ones but I would not stop the T3. I was confident about this but am now wondering if I should move the appointment to another time or just go for it? I asked for this referral as felt I needed to raise this topic once more with the NHS rather than being continually fobbed off and told its ME/CFS and left to deteriorate like so many others without treatment plus I’m getting into more debt. I was confident about it but now don't know if it's worth it!. My family are saying it’s up to me which I know but I’m just so unsure of it all having had such a rough ride with the NHS and some endo’s over so many years and just wanted some thoughts/suggestions/advice.
