Hi everyone. I am hypothyroid and I am on levo/t3 combo self medicating, since my doctor refused to prescribe t3. But this is not about me, it's about my friend (neighbor in fact). She is diagnosed as being hyper and prescribed levothyroxine by her doctor. She takes 100 mcg per day. No, I didn't make a mistake - she is HYPERTHYROID not hypo. Can anyone explain this to me? I tried to talk to her and tell her that her doctor must be mad, but she won't listen. He explained to her that her hyper state will get better if she takes more T4. Did anyone ever hear something like this happening? Am I mad or her doctor is? She is so thin you can almost see through her. I am worried about her. Can anyone help explaining this? Thanks.
