Endo appointment today

I`m just back from the appointment and according to my endo everything is normal (just as I expected).

My latest results are TSH 0.10 (0.35-3.50) T4 18 (8-21) and T3 4.30 (4-6)

I mentioned my T3 was low and she sort of agreed that it could be- but that we have no knowledge of what my T3 is when I`m well. She said many people are better with a lower T3.

I asked if she`s trial me with T3 and although she was very nice the answer was No.

So I`m hoping to self medicate and add a small amount to my Levo- could someone please Private Message me a reputable source?

I understand it`s hard to get at the moment and wondered if anyone has any suggestions on where to try?

Many thanks

Joyliz, your FT3 should improve as your increased dose of Levothyroxine takes effect. 18 days really isn't long enough for FT4 ad FT3 to improve. Have another blood test in 6/8 weeks to see how your levels are. If FT3 is still low you could try a little T3 then and it maybe more easily accessible by then too.


Thanks Clutter, I didn`t realize that it could improve as the levo takes effect. I`ll see how I go then before trying to get some T3. The endo also said that I`m to have another blood test in 4 weeks as we don`t know if the RAI has destroyed all of the thyroid yet- and until then stay at 125 levo. I`m to go back to see her in 6 months.
