I have been told by my endo that I no longer have a thyroid gland. Strange, I had one when I came into this country 6 years ago! So, I had Hashimoto hypothyroidism and no one told me? I asked. She shrugged. SHRUGGED! I have pleaded with endo to allow me to be on a different medication. I have been on Levo 100 mcg for years. I just started T3 last year, but she wants to take me off of it because my tsh was in the toilet. she said -.01. But, I felt better so refused to go off of it. Now, my weight is going up, my skin is dry, the hair no longer grows on my legs. I have begged them to let me try desiccated thyroid but she says it isn't for sale in this country and she doesn't recommend it. Levo, is a fine medication she says. I'm at a loss, and I am so tired of 'just being'. I want to live. There has to be something better than this. Please help.
