If you look back it was not me who suggested increasing doseage of T3 up to high levels. I have only reported my own story and left it up to the reader to decide what to do with the information. I have always said that my dose of 140 mcg T3 is what is right for ME and I have taken the decision to self medicate after nearly dying under the care of the NHS. My T3 works well for me, its the only thyroid medication I can take (and yes I have tried them all including Armour and T4). My husband is a bio-chemist and he is very happy with the way T3 works for me and has checked out why it works well for me and the doseage I am taking.
My dementia started over 10 years ago before I had any thyroid medication, as my TSH was always zero yet I was in the depths of myxoedema that started off the damage in my brain. Since starting the T3 and recovering, my dementia has actually improved much to the amazement of my specialist, and is more or less stable on this dose of T3.
The pituitary damage was noticed after MRIs after I started with epilepsy last year but i have since been discharged now that the anti-epilepsy medication is working to stop the fits.
I know that T3 is right for me and might be of benefit to many more people but you can only tell by trial and error as we are all different. I have now been on T3 for over 6 years and have been able to turn my life around from spending 24 hours a day in bed to playing rigorous games of tennis 3 times a week, cycling 20 odd miles a week and enjoying life to the full. Just T3 works what ever the science, you do not need T4 in the body, I am living proof of that!
