Deiodinase DI02 test result positive. Does any one know what is a typical Thyroxine / T3 dose or ratio when I have received the faulty gene from only one parent, eaning I have reduced ability to convert T4 to T3.
I have been hypothyroid for several years. Formally diagnosed only last December and put on 75mcg levothyroxine and 10mcg T3 for three months which was clearly not enough. Persuaded my GP to increase to 15T3 but after a month this is still not enough. Prior to my NHS diagnosis I had been self medicating with T3 at 37mcg per day and was functioning well. ( I am giving the NHS one last chance, before going my own way again with NDT plus T3 or maybe even back to T3 only )
Any advice or experiences much appreciated as my GP hasn't any idea about how to respond to the DI02 test result and my endo at Addenbrooks was totally happy to leave me unwell on 75/10 for another FOUR MONTH period.
Thank you - Andi
