I am lucky to be going to Crete next week on holiday and wondered if it is possible to get T3 over the counter there? If so what should I be asking for?
I would like to grab the chance of getting medication if I can. Please could someone PM me if they can help with details about getting medication?
I had a test recently for thyroid:
Free T4 13.3 ref range 9.0 - 20.0
TSH 2.47 ref range .30-6.00
Free T3 3.8 ref range 3.1-6.8
Does anyone know if this looks like my T3 is low and would benefit from treatment? Or should I go for straight thyroxine first?
I have high levels of peroxidase antibodies (already posted number somewhere on forum) so Hashimoto's and constantly battle with anaemia (although luckily not ceoliac - test has ruled that out).
I have all the symptoms of being hypo but not treated.
I have not gone back to my GP to see what they think of the results of the full reading (done privately). My TSH level is usually around 3.8 so this result was quite good this time, but is still within the NHS normal range and so despite high levels of antibodies and all the usual symptoms they won't treat me. I need to make another appointment and argue my case for treatment.
