Firstly thank you to all who messaged re t3 suppliers.
Briefly I was diagnosed with auto immune thyroid disorder in February time after paying privately in uk to see an endo as my gp sent me to one who said I was imagining
The weight gain - sensitive neck - hair loss - depression - constipation and joint pain and fatigue plus awful dry peeling skin on my face.
After a scan they discovered an 8mm nodule but said it was fine.
I have been on 50 mcg levo - originally I felt a minuscule improvement to my sensitive nrck and skin and constipation but now it's not making any difference whatsiever.
I teach dance and the weight gain and joint pain is a real problem 😔 I wentbtomendo to ask if meds should be upped or perhaps add t3 but he outright refused as my tsh is 0.55
( he won't test f3 or f4 cos he said my tsh is in range)
Vit d is fine
A gp colleague heard my story and told me she would have tried halving patients levo and added 25mcg t3 - as she has had great results. She told me to call my doc and ask - they refused.
I have ordered t3 from Greece which should be arriving soon and really want to try adding a little ( half a tablet - 12.5 mcg ) and halving my levo to 25 mcg
I cannot afford to get the blue horizon blood test at the moment I'm a single mother self employed and already seeing the private consultant set me back £250 😥
Has anyone else self medicated or adjusted - without blood tests? Is this a huge risk 😖
