Rt3 issue??

As you probably know, many doctors do not test Rt3. Mine never do, but i'm trying to come up with a good enough reason to get her to test it for me, as I have an appt this coming monday. I have been on ndt since november, and feeling so much better, however, I still have a severe problem with cold intolerence and my body temp fluctuates from 94.6 - 99.3. I have spells where just my hands and feet are cold, but also my hips and thighs turn ice cold, even when i'm in my home with the heat running. Could this be a Rt3 issue? Is it blocking the T3 perhaps?

  • I forgot to mention...I am on supplements of 50,000 units if vitamin D per week, iron and B12.

  • Hypoplexed, NHS doesn't test rT3 but you can order private tests from Blue Horizon and Genova via thyroiduk.org.uk/tuk/testin...

  • You often can tell, if you have a high reverse t3 by looking at the results of a free t4 and free t3 test.
