Just a post to say thank you to all the good people on this forum who have offered me advice and support. I was diagnosed with hypo-thyroidism 15 months ago and prescribed T4, I didn't improve, and at times even seemed to be getting worse. Looking for answers I came across this forum and that's one of the best pieces of luck I've had. I posted many, long, questions and the advice I received was so, so helpful.
After much thought and research (which i was guided to by forum members), I decided to self medicate with T3. I have been on it for 12 weeks now and I have seen a big improvement. I have also now been to see a second Endo who agreed to recommend prescribing T3, and have gotten my GP to agree to this without much fuss. If it wasn't for forum members who were able to recommend a T3 sympathetic Endo, this never would have happened.
So, from the bottom of my heart, a huge thank you to all who offered me advice and support. You have helped to change my life and I am extremely grateful.
