Im 34, Hashimoto for 6 years, january this year I crashed from stress and the thyroid went out of balance, TSH 24, adjusting the dose with GP.
My last test with 100 mcg of levothyroxine was TSH 0,19 (0,35-4,94), free T4 13,80 (9,01-19.05), free T3 1,55 (2,63-5,70).
My GP said that they are advised to concentrate only on TSH and T4 and that as of now he would not change anything and re-measure in 2 months. I asked for T3 to be added and he said there is no such medicine available, told him that I know it is, that some doctors prescribe it and that some people feel much better after it. He said that even if there is it is not something that he can prescribe, however that he will send an e-mail to endocrinology deppartment.
I assume the answer from endo wil come negative and I am in no state of going into battle for this.
I would kindly ask for any advice if T3 could be of benefit to me, where could I order it without prescription or is there a doctor who would prescribe it for results as mine.
I gave in and went on antidepressants a couple of months ago as i didnt manage, but as things dont seem to improve I would really like to try and balance the thyroid to see how much that influences my wellbeing.
Any help would be much appreciated.
