  • Angelina50, Liothyronine (T3) is the only licensed alternative to Levothyroxine in the UK but NDT (Armour, NatureThroid, WP and Erfa) can be prescribed on a named patient basis.

  • I also had my thyroid test results back reading 0.01. I am stressing out amx I am severely weak. I'm irritated at my doctor cause I have rode hos butt about not testing me once every 6 months. I have had 2 tests in the last 3 years!!! Unexceptable. Time to chanve doctors. I have struggled with hypothyroidism for almost 26 years and this has never happened.
