So, I saw the Endo today and as expected he wouldn't prescribe T3. He is however referring me to another endo and I asked for a specific Dr who was recommended to me by a forum member, and who will hopefully prescribe T3.
However, that could take up to 3 months and I'm sick of feeling dreadful, so I'm going to start self medicating with T3, and if it works I can tell the new endo that.
So, I have many questions and was hoping some of you lovely people could give me some advice.
I am wondering:
Where to get T3 (please pm me if you have a source)?
What is the smallest tablet you can get of T3? (Looks to be 25mcg from a Google search but does anyone know if you can get smaller tablets?)
How much T3 is equivelant to T4?
How much T3 I should take and what I should drop my T4 by? (thinking of T3/T4 combi rather than just T3 at the moment)
How and when to take T3?
Right now I am on 175mcg levo and my test results are as follows:
TSH 0.01 (Range 0.3 - 5), FT4 15.8 (Range 9-21) , TT3 1.6 (0.9-2.5) (Lab won't test for Free T3, I am going to get a private test)
I would be grateful for any advice,
Thank you x
