Hi I was diagnosed almost 20 years ago with hypothyroidism. It was a great feeling of relief at last to put a name to my condition. I am now taking 150 levothyroxine with limited benefit. My quality of life is poor. I have made many complaints about my health over the years I have attended an endocrinologist till recently , who just increased my dose instead of trying to work out why the medication was not eliminating all my symptoms even though I was told by many doctors I was over medicated. I am now 70 years old and being new to computers I had no idea that levothyroxine does not work for all patients. I have attended many clinics at hospital with numerous health complaints over the years. I now feel that the addition of T3 along with levothyroxine may have had a better outcome, or a trial with natural thyroxine. i don't want to waste any more time and i will to ask my doctor to try different remedies .
