I've posted briefly before and got some good advice so was hoping for some again as I am unsure how to progress.
A brief history. I have had alopecia since the age of 8 and diagnosed hypothyroid since my early twenties. All was managed well until after the birth of my third child (who is now 5). Since then I have felt dreadful (to put it mildly). I am 41.
After some advice and reading here I managed to (a) see an endocrinologist for the first time and (b) be given t3 alongside my thyroxine. I've been taking it for 2 months and have had my latest bloods through which I will post below.
I had been on 150mg for years and was over medicated so Dr reduced to 125 and prescribed 5 of t3 twice a day also. Upon receiving the new blood results he has suggested dropping to 100mg and continuing with the T3 at same levels which I think I agree with. However, I feel so much better by adding the T3 I am wondering how I would know if I might need more? Also, I think my other blood results are not great but he is perfectly happy with them. Any advice please?
Apologies for the mammoth post!!!!
