I have tried really hard to work WITH my gp, trying things he has suggested.
My T3 has always been about 3.5 (3-6) and that only gets tested because my TSH is 0.05 and so 'out of range'. The gp himself said that as my T4 has gone up my t3 has gone down. I did query whether I might have a conversion problem but got no response!
In a full blood count I found my B12 was 284(190-900) but again it was 'in range'. I did persuade the doc to give me B12 but I got cyanocobalamin and only 50mcg (yes - mcg!)
It was suggested on here that that dose would do no good within my lifetime so I decided to self medicate with Jarrow 5000mcg sublingual. I have been taking those now for 7 weeks and feel sooooo much better. I had a blood test last Friday and collected my results today. My B12 is now 1600 - yippee. I'll finish the 5000 and then keep taking the 1000 as many have suggested is a good way to go.
My T3 today was still low at 3.9(3-6) and I KNOW the doc won't do anything about that so, it's back to self medicating. My query is, how do I decide whether to try T3 or NDT.
Any comments gratefully received.
