I started self medicating with T3 as my doc refused to treat my underactive thyroid as she said it was too low to treat as yet. (serum free T4 11.5 pmol/L (12.0 - 22.0)
serum TSH 4.9 pmol/L (0.27 - 4.20)
this was 18/08/2015
I started taking T3 almost immediately and have noticed an improvement in my breathlessness. I have just received my latest blood results which are as follows
serum free T3 7.4 pmol/L (3.1 - 6.8)
serum free T4 4.9 pmol/L (12.0 - 22.0)
serum TSH level 0.07 mu/L (0.27 - 4.20)
report says "TFT's are consistent with T3 therapy.
what do you make of these results and do I need to tell doctor I am self medicating ?
I am to visit doctor on Friday and don't know if I should attend ( as she already said she would not treat me until my TSH level reached 10 mu/L ) or just carry on with T3 and hope for the best?
best regards..... Loraine.
