Hi all! First time poster so please be gentle!
I've been battling hypothyroidism for around a year, and after today's blood test results it seems that my levels have finally settled on 100 levo. I can't say I'm feeling the effects one feels when undiagnosed (the complete inability/motivation to get out of bed), but they're still there and I'm definitely not the person i was pre-condition.
I've been attempting to educate myself as much as possible and have been reading about T3 conversion, dessicated thyroid and armour thyroid. In short, has anybody else been in a similar position to myself and what was their next step? I'm apprehensive to approach my GP about it, as he can be stereotypical snarky and condescending when I "blame everything on my thyroid".
Having said that, I am apprehensive to stop taking my prescribed levo which has at least done something for me, in order to self-medicate and predict T3 levels.
As you may have guessed I'm currently feeling like a crazy person attempting to get my life back on track but I don't really know where the best place to start is, any advice/personal experiences are welcome!
