I have now got my most recent test results back and I am awaiting an appointment with the nhs endo.
Serum free T4 level - 17.6 pmol/L
Serum free triiodothyronine level - 4.9 pmol/L
I am anxious to take T3 due my vast weight gain and generally feeling poorly than I ever have! I have a lot of swelling around my whole body, but mainly my chest, neck, tummy and face. But my lower legs and ankles are slightly swollen too.
I have been reading that your T3 level should be high or over-high in order to work (from an American website Hyperthyroid mom) so I think mine needs to higher to work properly.
Can I self-medicate? Although, I would be happier doing it with my GP blessing, but he says to leave it to the endo.
I haven't had any B12 injections but I do take a strong vitamin B compound and thiamine tablets due to long standing disorder.
I feel very confused, alone and upset and really don't know how to go about getting some answers, it all seems like lots of information that I don't understand.
Thank you to all of you who take the time to read and reply to this, it is a massive help.
