After two years of feeling rubbish on levo for hypo (currently 75mg) and putting on two stone whilst dieting and exercising (doctor clearly doesn't believe me) I just bought some T3 myself and am planning to self medicate.
I've always asked for print outs of my blood results but here's the thing - they have always refused to test T3 so all I have are results for TSH and T4 - latest ones are:
TSH 5.5 (0.27-4.20)
Free T4 14.2 (12-22)
Is it safe to start taking T3 without ever having had my levels tested? And if not how do I get someone to test my T3?
Sorry for all the questions, I just feel rubbish at the moment and I'm so disappointed that my previously nice doctor now obviously just thinks I'm lazy...
