You won't believe this but my GP has finally given me some T3 Liothyronine 20mcg despite my private Endo saying "repeat biochemical tests as performed via NHS did not confirm low FT3 (measures on 3 separate occasions); and that previously reported marginally lower T3 levels as measured by Blue Horizon were likely stress related and in line with diagnosis) ie. severe anxiety and depression".
Been on an increased Levo dose of 125mcg now for 2 weeks as last test results early this month showed I was undermedicating. I also now take my Levo at bedtime. Also take 2mg Diazepam a couple of times a day and also 20-40mg beta blockers (which I have since found out interfere with T4-T3. Also have a high rt3!
TSH 15.70 (0.27-4.20)
FT4 14.77 (12-22)
FT3 2.41 (3.1-6.8)
End April results
I have extremely high cortisol levels in the morning and part of the day, plus I have severe anxiety and depression.
Clutter and a couple of others have advised me how to start my T3 ie. 5mcg with my Levo.
I am looking for other member's points of view who are in a similiar situation as me and how they started taking their T3 (see my profile)
