I had my appointment with the endocrinologist this afternoon.
I've posted previously regarding a change of GP and the subsequent 'wrestle' over my T3 prescription - they wanted me to decrease from 85/90mcgs a day (which I've been on for about 16 years) to 70 and that was just for starters.
Well the wonderful consultant told me that he gauges dosage based upon three things:
1. How the patient feels (he must be some sort of medical maverick!)
2. The T3 reading (he said TSH and everything else was irrelevant when in T3 only
3. A physical examination to detect any signs of over replacement.
He was entirely happy with what he found and sent me off still on my 85mcgs of T3 a day, even told me I could go to 90 and see what happens.
And he'll be writing to my GP confirming that my dosage is just right.
