Hello, I was wondering if anybody could recommend an NHS doctor or private doctor/endocrinologist that prescribes T3 as I am really struggling with severe depression, excessive tiredness, a lot of hair loss, constipation etc.I was diagnosed with sub clinical hypothroidism 2 years ago and prescribed 25mg of levothyroxine. It did bring my TSH down but I was still experiencing symptoms. I had a total hysterectomy for PMDD 3 months ago and after that my TSH rose to 4.02 and I have had to alter my HRT as I have been feeling even worse. I currently take sodium valproate as a mood stabiliser, venlafaxine as an antidepressant and fenofibrate for cholesterol. My last blood test was
FT4 12.2. (9-23)
TSH 1.97. ( 0.3-4.2)
B12 617. (190-910)
Serum folate. 13.1 (3.3-9999)
(I did take my multi vit& mineral supplement before blood test)
I have also noticed that on every blood test I have had done my Haematocrit level is always at the very bottom of the range and so is my serum alkaline phosphatase & my EGFR is always 78 which I think is a bit low.
I am going to have my FT3 and thyroid antibodies tested privately as my doctor refuses to test them or raise my levothyroxine even though I told her I am really suffering. So I would really appreciate it if anyone could help with my results and let me know of a good NHS preferably or private doctor that would prescribe me T3 for my symptoms because I have been ill for the last 25 years and I feel like giving up because I think I have a problem converting t4 to t3 or the medication I am taking is causing or adding to my problems. Also would selenium help me at all and how much should I take?
many thanks in advance.
