I've been really poorly over the last week, most likely because of a serious interaction between two drugs I've been put on for Bipolar that it turns out can be lethal if prescribed together! My GP ordered bloods yesterday, and phoned today asking me to go in tomorrow to discuss the results. There were two points of concern. One was hugely elevated white blood cells, and the second he said was hyperthyroidism because my TSH is suppressed at 0.03. I take 2 grains of NDT, I'm at the top of the range of T3 and have never felt better in terms of the hypo symptoms I've had for years. I decided to self-treat on NDT when he offered me a low dose of Levo to get me back within range, and I was sick of feeling awful.
I have no symptoms of hyperthyroidism at all, and from all the reading I have done, T3 therapy often suppresses the TSH as the body does not need the thyroid to produce the T4 to convert. However, I can't find a single document that spells this out that I can show him, or an article on exactly this. I just find paragraphs here and there interpspersed through many pages of books that I've read. Does anyone have any ideas, or know of any articles that I can present him with that put it simply and consisely so that he doesn't have to wade through pages of stuff. He is a really bad tempered man at the best of times.
