I'm getting a [private hosp] Lyme test done tomorrow & at the same time thought to get Selenium [been at the brazils a few years] and T3 done at the same time.
I'm on 25ug Levo ,over a month ,and Dr already refuses to consider T3 testing later on,
Same old: TSH+T4 only.
I'm not feeling great on low dose [worse than before, energy wise + aches] and the choice is either to bump the Levo up,already refused for now -or stop the 'experiment' until I can get a specialist referral to suit.
The big ? is- Is FT3 at this point a waste of money? [What about Total T3?]
I feel it may show effects of meds by now- but I can't afford the meaningful RevT3 test -which would give me a FT3:RT3 ratio for assessing my progress better.
If I stop Levo now the chance is gone to see T3 level under the Levo regime- however imperfect it may be.
Only one FT3 test to hand, private (pre- treatment with 25 mcg Levo) 4.8 [4.0 -6.8]
TSH 4.84 [0.27-4.2]
FT4 12.9 [12-22]
