OK, so I already know that I don't convert T4 to T3 very well, or at all. I take NDT only after initially having horrible side effects from T3. I feel OK, but am still always tired, even though my free T3 is at the top of the range or even above. And losing weight is a struggle! I'd be up for trying T3 again, with a view to going T3 only. My original experience was 15 years ago. I have never had reverse T3 tested.
My question is a) what would I gain from knowing if I have the D102 gene mutation?
b)what does the counselling consist of, and what do you learn other than the result of the test?
b)would I gain more or less useful knowledge from the 23andme test? The price is the same, if you include the cost of counselling.
I am past childbearing age, but I guess it would be useful to my children and grandchildren to know if I may have passed something nasty on to them. Like most parents I already feel I haven't done a good enough job, so I don't think I'd melt down if I knew there were genetic problems!
