I just wanted to put an update on here.
Since starting T3 in April and joining slimming world 8 weeks ago my weight has gone down from 14 stone 2 to 12 stone 10. This is a combination of the diet and the T3, I tried the same diet last year whilst on levothyroxine and could not lose any weight at all.
I want everybody out there who thinks there is no light at the end of the tunnel, well there is.
I was ill for nearly 10 years, tired all the time, no motivation, pain in my knees, swollen ankles and weight spiralling out of control. After many visits to the Dr and different endocrinologists I DID NOT GIVE UP. I took my health into my own hands, I researched T3, I bought myself a blood pressure monitor and I bought my own T3.
I want you all to know out there that I am now well, I want to do things, I no longer want to lounge about the house and lying on the sofa most of the day.
I read an old book that belonged to my great uncle which referred to the Thyroid gland as the spirit of life and that could not be more true because up until the past few months I had no life and now I have it back again. x
