I have been to see my Endo today and told him that I have been very tired lately and my ankles were swelling and I wasn't sleeping. He informed me that I was running out of options as the T3 he gave me contained wheat and I couldn't tolerate it and was not prepared to pay £375.00 for the alternative. The only other alternative was to take more Levothyroxine and then if that didn't work try Armour.
Now I am confused, first he wants me to take T3 which I couldn't tolerate and now he wants me to increase my Levothyroxine. The T4 apparently is below mid range and he wants it to be much higher and the Vitamin D is very low.
As I have put on a significant amount of weight since my thyroid problems began and then more when I went on Levothyroxine, I do not really want to increase the dosage.
Any advice would be much appreciated - he wouldn't let me have my blood results.
