Referred by my Gp I saw an endo for the first time at the RIE, Edinburgh. I could not have wished for a better experience, she listened, she outlined what she could offer, no NDT but T3, to find a way to treat me so that I feel better than I have done in the last twenty years. Was on 100mcg Levothyroxine and she suggested 25 mcg T4 and 20 mcg T3. Will see her again in 2 1/2 mths and wonder if this dose seems ok or is too low. Anyone with experience of switching from T4 to T4/T3 has any suggestions? Was I just lucky to have come across her? I found her very helpful and supportive and so relieved that at least there is something else that I have the chance to try and maybe improve my hypothyroid state.
