I have been taking T3/T4 combination successfully for over two years. Recently symptoms of Hypothyroidism returned although test results within normal range. Specialist locum took me off T3 altogether as she said she didn't believe in taking T3 and recent studies backed her opinion!
Recently saw the long standing consultant who has recommended trying Armour Thyroxine alongside Levothyroxine. He said he is unable to prescribe this as not supported or uk licenced. My pharmacist has also said without a doctor actually prescribing the drug he is unable to supply it either. On researching the Armour it is available in US and Canada. Even if I do source the Armour I have been given no guidelines at all on how to take this and how much.
I am now thinking I want to research to find the top UK specialist in Hypothyroidism to ascertain exactly how I should be treated as I have lost faith in a service I used to have every confidence with locally. I live in Somerset and have been seeing a local consultant . I don't mind how far I travel if there is good evidence to support an excellent consultant in this field of medicine.
