I appreciate any help any one can give me on my appointment today with my endo....
Well he refused to support me with t3.
Going on my blood results back when I was pregnant in 2011 when they decided to start me on levo, my tsh was 5.0 and my t4 was 8.8, he said the results was just slightly over, I was started on 25mcg, then eventually upped to 75mcg going on results, I was told to stop the levo as soon as I gave birth, which I did, 4 weeks I was restarted because I felt hypo, I felt awful.
He said biochemically he can't support t3 because my test results back in 2011 wouldn't support hypothyroid, but it don't hurt anyone to have a little levo added during pregnancy.
He wants me to stop t3.
I don't get it, I was on 175mcg and my tsh was1.17...
Surely if I was not hypothyroid I would be hyper?
He also wants to see now with t3 in my system how hyper my tsh levels are... Now I certainly don't feel hyper,
If anything the opposite... When I forget to take my t3 I feel awful.
He said he wants to help me, he also said that there is no proof that t3 works and it actually cause more problems later in life I.e osteoporosis and heart disease.
He also said, if I want he will refer me to any endo in the UK for a different opinion.
I'm confused, why do I feel so much better on t3?
Many thanks for reading
