Hello I had my op on Tuesday glad its all over now and on the bright side while I'm off work recovering I can rest due to my daily migraines.
Now I want to self medicate but on reading previous posts there's a difficulty in obtaining good quality T3 obviously I am not going to go down the route of dodgy body builder websites.
So here goes T3 is available on a named patient basis on the NHS but what about desiccated thyroid is that available on the NHS or is the spawn of the devil?
I have an Endo appointment in 3 weeks but I have a feeling he might just increase my T4 as my TSH was 4.41 on 100 mcg of Thyroxine, I am not getting my hopes up that he will prescribe T3 although I am willing to beg! Hopefully he'll check my T3 to see if I have a conversion problem.
So I thought I would order some T3 just now as I know it takes about a month to get here that way if the Endo says NO- I can start T3 a week or so after my appointment.
Basically which is easier to get a hold of T3 or desiccated thyroid extract?
I've ordered hormone testing and urine thyroid function testing to get a better look at my T3 and adrenals to see if the problem lies there I have also started taking the Vitamin B12 spray.
I cannot afford to go private I am on a low income and will be severely worse off the next 3 months due to being off work with my foot op, so this is the best solution I can come up with.
Any advise would be appreciated.
