Hi, I've been on 60mcg T3, 100mcg T4 for a few years ever since an endo at st barts explained that I wasn't converting the t4 . My gp stunned me today telling she would take me off T3 and put the T4 up to 150mcg.. I am so scared, I was bedbound before, I went through premature menopause the 2 years before they put me on the T3. My weight shot up and even though I was on a diet, I didn't lose a single pound. My depression and anxiety were terrible.
My bowel got so lazy it perforated almost killing me .
I am so scared as I'm really ill now.,. had another bowel medical emergency surgery in november fora strangulated hernia which I'm trying to recover from, I have m.e/cfs/arthritis/fibro combo, and my mental health is pretty bad, plus the weight crept back up so I need to lose 3 stone. I don't know how I'll cope without the T3.
My Gp says that everyone will get take off it soon. Any ideas as to how to plead my case? Has anyone else been told that the have to come off it too?
