i recently added a post asking if T3 could be obtained privately or on prescription and got lots of helpful replies. Since then, I visited my dr and came away feeling like I'm just a bit of an idiot for bothering them. I explained all my symptoms, she advised my weight gain of 3 stone is just what I eat even though I was a UK size 8 prior to being diagnosed with undeactivd thyroid and have tried numerous diets and excercise without losing a pound, and never eat much to begin with, her response to my erratic periods is to book me in for an ultrasound even though I have no pain with them. my extreme tiredness she thinks is anaemia and advised me to up my dose of ferrous sulphate even though last iron bloods were normal. Everyone of the symptoms that I have since thyroid she completely dismissed and said I am within 'normal range' so it's not that but I still feel awful and now really not sure what to do, Dr advised that they don't log t3 but my free t4 level is 13.4 and TSH is 3.19, I think these are pretty good so I don't know why I feel so poorly. can anyone advise if these sound normal and I I can buy NDT without a prescription, if so does anyone know where? Can anyone help. Thankyou 😊
