I am on 250mcg levoxine (I'm now in Sweden) and for the first time in 14 years my NEW doctor has said my results are normal. I have discussed the T3 supplement with him before and he WAS open to the idea until my results came back "normal".
I have not yet seen or received my results. I will get them today.
When I was on 175 mcg I put on around 1kg a week and had very severe hypo symptoms. I manage on the dose I am now on- but I still don't feel 100%
I truly believe that after reading masses of info and hearing so many stories from people who are doing better with the extra t3 that this could be exactly what I need.
He obviously has no clue and I have no other options where I live. He is a private doctor as I left my GP specifically to try my luck with the private one.
I am 145kgs.
I also exercise like a madman, drink protein shakes and eat well. I put on 35kg in a matter of months when my dose was 175 and I was going to the gym 4-5 times a week.
I also did Herbalife where you go to group meetings and drink protein shakes for two meals per day. I was the only person in the group who if I was luck would go down 500g every 2-3 weeks. It is soul destroying.
I am also gluten and milk intolerant.
Any ideas/ arguments and what is the way to work out the correct dose for t3 before I go today?
