Ok so I am suffering with congenital hypothyroidism and have come to believe Levo along isn't for me! I have been struggling to lose the same 15lbs for a year - I am very active (insanity, running, cycling, on the go with 2 young kids) and 95% of the time very healthy with my food choices! I have signed up to weight watchers and I just feel STUCK! I want to self medicate with T3 and when I mentioned T3 to my doc he just said "you don't need that!" Say what?
He is testing my thyroxine levels after me asking for the first time in over 2 years and I just don't feel I am being looked after considering I have absolutely NO gland! I am sick of telling the doctor this? They are shocked each time I confirm - I was born without one!
So help? Where do I go? How do I get the right treatment because god only knows I will get a normal levels result!
