I had my visit with my Endo yesterday but after building up a good rapport with her was told she had left. This is so sad as was at ease with her and she was the one who trialled me on the T3. However the male doctor that I saw was very good also. He has no problem with the T3. I told him my dosage T4 50mcgs and T3 30mcgs. I said that I was not feeling good and felt the dosage was too low. He checked my August results and agreed. The Free T4 was too low and has upped my Levo back upto 75mcgs (never been on 50mcgs). He has tweaked the T3 down to 20mcgs (I think I will keep it the same though), as was at the lower end. He said to crush the tablets and to take on awakening on a empty stomach and to split the T3 three times a day with 6 to 8 hours in between. Also saw my ferritin was not optimimized was 88 and said should be at least 100 or over, and has prescribed me Iron. I told him that my hair was falling out and that that could be the cause of it. Also asked if I snored and I said I think I do, and wake my self up. He is sending me for a sleep apnea test. Does anyone know about this?
