I have been self medicating. I have been sourcing the T3 from Mexico and now take 75mcg T3 and 25 mcg Levo....
I felt terrible on Levo alone and my Doctor was not treating my symptoms and relied heavily on my TSH being within range (the upper range).
I decided to take matters into my own hands and started to self medicated and over time I am taking the above mentioned dosage of T3.
I not feeling great decided to let my doctor know....needless to say my Doctor freaked out and concluded that I needed an immediate blood test and that I have been foolish and meddling into something that could be highly dangerous. I did stand my ground as to why I took this course of action but she was not impressed.
My blood results are in and are as follows
TSH - 0.02 mIU/L (0.27-4.20mIU/L)
T4 - 2.1 pmol/L (12.00-22.00pmol/L)
T3 - 3.14pmol/L (3.10-6.80pmol/L)
Please could anyone guide me as to what I should be saying to my Doctor next?
I am seeing her on This coming Tuesday. Should I be asking for a referral? Should I be taking more T3?. I feel tired and muscles still ache although better than before....just think that's a lot of T3 I am already on.....feeling I'm losing my way a bit....
Background Had Graves and then had RAI....
