So I finally had my first endo appointment on the NHS......what a disappointment that was. I have been feeling better since starting the candida diet, but this endo dismissed that and said that from my results I was WAY over medicated, that I am on an "industrial amount of T3" and that my heart will give out if I keep this up. He then looked at my blood results from before being medicated and said that those results were absolutely fine and that I should never have been put on Thyroid medication and that he "would feel less anxious if we could just get my TSH back to where it should be between 1 and 2". It took all my will power not to smack him.
Ok, so from these results it does look like I am slightly over on the T3- happy to reduce that a little as I am feeling a bit better, so the less I take fine with me, its not cheap! But is one point over the range really cause for such concern? I do not feel over medicated. The endo wants me to come of ndt and go on levo (PLEASE NO!!) and lower my T3 and eventually lower all meds until I am "back to a range that he is comfortable with" Thoughts?
P.S I was given B12 loading injections so thats why that is high. Should I worry about Folate?
