Hi lovely people, hope you can help me un confuse my mind! Haven't posted in a while, just been trying to get through each day waiting for the next appointment, bloods etc.
I recently saw an nhs endo who has prescribed a 6mth trial of t3 (as well as the t4 I'm already on).
When I picked up the presc today I realised that not only has he dropped my t4 from 100mcg to 75mcg, he has also only prescribed 10 mcg t3 a day.
My recent bloods showed that my t4 is dropping (it was 18.2 previously) and that my t3 is low which means I'm not converting.
I am annoyed he has dropped my t4 as I felt like I could do with it being raised. I am also annoyed at the minute dose of t3. (Previously I was on armour thyroid, 2.5grains, so taking 24mcg t3 daily and still my t3 wasn't optimal.
I am tempted to continue on 100mcg t4 (as I have a repeat presc)
And take 20mcg t3 (split in to 2 daily doses).
Please can you advise me if my plan is a good one, I could well be missing some important info (like you need less t4 when taking t3?).
Or do you think I should go with what the endo has suggested? (75mcg t4, 10mcg t3 daily)?
I'm scared of feeling worse (due to less t4). This had been one hell of a year and all I want is to start feeling better.
Many thanks in advance
T4 17.4 (12-22)
T3 3.6 (3.10-6.80)
TSH 1.67 (0.27-4.2)
