Just got results back from Blue Horizons, which shows Reverse T3
I'm on 100mcg of Levo. I've always had reactions towards T4 meds. All attempts to use NDT caused immediate saggy eyelids (really bad like Uncle Fester + yellow discharge). Levo nothing like as bad, but some signs of it.
I wanted to do it properly, so I've stuck to my dose & tested. Now with this Reverse T3, I'm guessing I should try T3, shouldn't I? I want to do it properly via the NHS. Not because I don't want to pay for the stuff, but I don't want to be exposed to shortages etc..
So......how do I go about getting my GP to prescribe T3?
