Would love to find a private source of T3, but I worry about 'rogue' online pharmacies, counterfeit medication, etc. Can anyone please PM me with your trusted sources?
My GP had done a full thyroid panel in my last blood tests after a recent increase in levothyroxine from 112 mcg to 125, but the Free T4 and Free T3 weren't included in the lab results I was given. Won't see my GP until the 16th to ask for the details. Even when my TSH is 0.1 I have hypo symptoms (I'm going to do the DI02 gene test).
TSH - 1.48 mU/L (0.2-1 mU/l)
Folate - 11.3 ug/L (4.6-18.7 ug/L)
Ferritin 102 ug/L (13-150 ug/L)
Fitamin B12 - 583 ng/L (197-866 ng/L)
For info, my TSH had been 3.29 mU/L on the 112 mcg dose of levothyroxine. All the results just say "fT4 not above 25 pmol/L" in the range descriptions, but the fT4 isn't actually stated anywhere.
I have Hashimoto's and it was recently flaring for a few months, resulting in a small goitre (can stress cause flares?). Had a scan yesterday and the goitre is gone, but the ultrasound technician commented that my "thyroid has taken a beating over the years". No lumps or nodules, which is good news.
Thanks for any help! I know my results aren't very useful without the actual fT4 and fT3 levels...
**Just as background, I was healthy until I lived in a not-so-developed country as a student. I spent time in a city that had a metallurgical factory that spewed heavy metal toxins into the air. I also later learned that in that specific country, radiation-contaminated building materials can be used. I truly wonder if heavy metal poisoning and/or slightly elevated background radiation levels could have contributed to my thyroid problems.**
