After 15 years of being diagnosed as hypo, I have been referred to see an NHS endocrinologist...The reason being, I went to see my doctor this morning to discuss my latest blood test results and my TSH was unmeasurable and my free T4 was above the upper limit at 27 (already kinda discussed this in another post) and I lowered my levo myself, two weeks ago this weekend, because a) I felt a tad toxic and b) I wanted to trial the T4/T3 combo (thanks again Clutter!). So I ordered some T3 and started taking a small dose of 12.5mcg, split into two doses of 6.25mcg through the day, with T4 lowered to 150mcg. And I have to say, I feel amazing! I will have been on 12.5mcg of T3 and 150mcg of T4 a day for a full week this Thurs, so still early days, but I really do feel fab! Told the doctor all this this morning and she was happily surprised. Told her where I got the T3 from and she was slightly less happy, but she was ok, but she was saying I don't know what they may or may not be cut with and fillers etc and then said that as I was feeling so good anyway (assuming I am actually taking T3 and not speed), it might be a good idea if I can get T3 in the UK on prescription from an endo and right there and then she referred me!
Who else has seen an NHS endo and what can I expect
