I have been reading alot about thyroid problems. I come across an article which says that the reason we still suffer with symptoms ie, brain fog, tiredness, hairloss, coldness, tingling in hands etc is that the body has trouble converting T4 into T3 even though the blood tests come back normal TSH and T4.
I explained this to my doctor and he just thinks im depressed. I kept on asking for him to check my T3 levels but he said they do not test for this as its to expensive. However he has now refered me on to the Endo specialist who he said will do these tests im asking for.
Can you clarify if the statement about T4 conversion to T3 is correct. I need to be armed with the facts before I see the Endo in January. (Suzy Cohen on you tube explains this)
