I have been seeing a Private Specialist in North London, he has done rT3 and cortisol bloods, adrenal saliva, and urine T3 T4.
Reverse T3 was the only outlier (0.61pmol/lml - with bounds 0.14 to 0.52), and was given two options, ideal option in his eyes was Supplements (as above) or second option T3.
i chose 1st option as im travelling and working abroad for a few months and wouldn't be able to monitor my t3 levels as easily. - but they cost well over 100 pound a month...so cant keep this up for life!!!!
Has anyone had any success getting their reverse T3 down? if so how long? if so what dose?
if not, did you have to then go onto t3 and did that work?
Thanks in advance!

Had Encephalitis aged 15 - so hypothyroid isnt nessisairily only cause of symptoms!
