Finally T3 prescribed by my Endo

Finally T3 prescribed by my Endo

Hey all

After battling the NHS and the ignorance of many Endos, I have finally met an amazing endo, and I picked up my prescription of T3 today.

The Endo was saddened to hear about my battle with the Endos at a london hospital, and the fact they had discharged me, because I could not take Levothyroxine. After years of Health issues and scares re heart issues, this marvellous man prescribed T3, as long as I was taking T4. I am currently taking Porcine Glandular, however I need to find a natural T4, with no T3.

Any recommendations welcome guys,.

Thanks

I have never seen any T4-only medicine other than levothyroxine.

I suspect it would be difficult (or costly!) to remove all the T3 but leave the T4 if they started with desiccated thyroid.

Monic01, Natural comes as T4+T3. T4 solus is synthetic.
